Described as "the most anticipated book in college publishing", Mankiw's Principles of Economics is finally here. And what makes it stand out from all of the other principles texts? He wrote it for the students. He wanted to bring economics to life ...
for them and keep them interested in it. How did he do this? He has written a briefer text that explains economics by the rules, not the exceptions, and by applications, not a lot of theory. In keeping with this theme, he has revealed to students how economics affects their everyday lives by building in a strong policy orientation to show them economics in "action".
