Building on the tremendous success of their best-selling Principles of Economics text, Brue and McConnell have written a new one semester text to provide a fresh alternative. This new, 18-chapter textbook will appeal to anyone teaching a one-semester introductory course. Brue/McConnell is a patient, substantive treatment of micro and macro economics for the one-semester course with many, up-to-date, motivating examples.
