Summary

This text presents basic economics through a lively, non-biased, student-friendly discussion of economic issues and of the policy perspectives surrounding them. It effectively balances liberal and conservative viewpoints and incorporates solid international coverage. Student understanding is enhanced through an exceptionally clear writing style, and by leaving out or relegating to appendices complex topics more appropriate for a Principles of Economics course.
