Summary

Bring the study of economics to life with Principles of Macroeconomics, 6th edition. Award-winning educator and author Fred Gottheil speaks directly to student experience through a conversational writing style and narrative that uses stories, familiar examples, engaging scenarios, and relevant examples from literature emphasizing that economic principles can be found in all aspects of modern life. The text focuses on the key questions and presents the basic concepts-developing economic analysis step-by-step. The result is a more interactive and enjoyable learning experience when compared to the pedantic approaches often found in texts. Each chapter in the sixth edition has been thoroughly revised to reflect the most relevant data and also emerging and critical issues such as economic bubbles, the sub-prime housing fiasco, immigration, and the failed economies of the bottom billion of our world population. We invite you to see for yourself how Fred Gottheil’s approach will help to shorten the distance between students and the exciting study of economics.
