Summary

Roger Miller believes that students learn best when they are motivated, and that motivation comes when they connect an idea to their day-to-day lives. That is why every chapter of Economics Today: The Macro View is packed with thought-provoking applications that give immediate, common-sense reinforcement to economic concepts. From international to local, corporate to consumer, policy to personal, these examples spark lively discussion both in and out of the classroom. The result is that students gain a natural understanding of economic theory and analysis, and they learn to use economic reasoning in their everyday decisions.
