In the 4th edition Greg Mankiw has created a full educational program for students and instructors -- Experience Mankiw 4e.

Benefits:

  • NEW! Revised Aggregate Demand and Aggregate Supply Content: The AD/AS content has been revised to streamline the instructor's experience teaching the material in the classroom and to clarify student thinking on an economy's transition from the short run to the long run. For a detailed listing of these extensive changes contact your local sales representative.
  • Mankiw's Ten Principles of Economics: Mankiw's Ten Principles of Economics introduces students to the ten most important principles, which are then thoroughly incorporated in discussions throughout the book.
  • A Great Chapter to Create Economic Majors: Chapter 23 was one of Mankiw's favorite chapters to write. He presents both sides of five major debates over economic policy as a way to end the course. Reviewers say that this chapter is the "perfect ending to a great novel." Use this chapter as a way to get students involved in debating macroeconomic issues.
  • "FYI" Boxes: These boxes provide additional material "for your information." Some of them offer a glimpse into the history of economic thought. Others clarify technical issues. Still others discuss supplementary topics that instructors might choose either to discuss or skip in their lectures.
  • "In the News" Boxes: One benefit that students gain from studying economics is a new perspective and greater understanding about news from around the world. To highlight this benefit, excerpts from many newspaper articles are included, some of which are opinion columns written by prominent economists. These articles, together with brief introductions, show how basic economic theory can be applied. Many of these boxes are new to the 4th edition.
  • Case Studies: Economic theory is useful and interesting only if it can be applied to understanding actual events and policies. This book, therefore, contains numerous case studies that apply the theory that has just been developed.
  • Quick Quizzes: After each major section, students are offered a "quick quiz" to check their comprehension of what they have just learned. Students can compare their answers to the answers provided at the end of the book, then reread the material in that section if necessary.
  • Problems and Applications: Each chapter also contains a variety of problems and applications that ask students to apply the material that they have learned. Some professors may use these questions for homework assignments. Others may use them as a starting point for classroom discussions.
  • NEW! Extensive Current Events Updates: 40 new items have been added to the popular text features such as "In the News", "FYI" and "Case Studies" creating an engaging and timely learning experience for learners. Included among the new items are a new case study, "Mr. Mankiw Goes to Washington," and a new "In the News" box, "Super Bowl Economics" explaining how economics analysis helped the New England Patriots win the Super Bowl.
  • NEW! New International Content and Examples: New content on the global distribution of income and child labor: has been added in response to reviewer feedback asking for more detailed coverage of international economics, To illicit classroom discussion, the question of What is the best way to reduce the use of child labor around the world?" is raised.
  • NEW! Additional New Content Reflecting Today's World of Economics: Every chapter in the 4th edition has been revised and modified to reflect the current environment of today's domestic and global economy. These topics, among others, include: the presentation of the possibilities frontier model, free markets, transitions of supply and demand curves, tradeable pollution permits, discussion of goods, economic profit, welfare reform, and the Phillips curve.
  • NEW! Aplia Integration for Mankiw 4e: Mankiw's 4th edition is fully integrated with Aplia, the premier online economics learning program. Users benefit from consistent economic language between the 4th edition and Aplia, discounted product deliver options (print or digital), and the experience of applying the theory learned in the classroom.

  • NEW! Streamlined Chapters to Improve Student Understanding: Mankiw eliminated the list of "Chapter Objectives" at the beginning of each chapter in order to focus the reader's attention on the author's concise introduction to each chapter.
