Principles of Economics

Principles of Economics 2e covers the scope and sequence of most introductory economics courses. The text provides a balanced approach to micro and macro economics, both Keynesian and classical views, and to the theory and application of economics concepts. It includes many current examples, which are handled in a politically equitable way. The second edition has been thoroughly revised to increase clarity, update data and current event impacts, and incorporate the feedback from many reviewers and adopters.
