Summary: Steve Slavin's lively and comprehensive Economics student-friendly, step-by-step approach, coupled with its low price and built-in Workbook/Study Guide is very attractive to adopters. Instructors and students like the author's humorous anecdotes, direct language, and easy conversational style. The text encourages active rather than passive reading.

  • Streamlined Text:
    Steve Slavin has streamlined the text of the 7th Edition, cutting over 100 pages while retaining all its key features. The result is that the 7th Edition is not only a smoother read, but is more relevant to today's college students.
  • Full Updates Throughout the Text: Over the last three years the economic outlook has changed radically, and the 7th Edition of Slavin addresses such major new questions confronting us as: How have 9/11, the 2001 recession, the stock market collapse, and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq affected our economy? Was the "new economy" all that new, or just a spurt of old fashioned economic growth? How are the huge tax cuts of 2001 and 2003 affecting our economy? Are the large and growing budget and trade deficits here to stay? Why didn't large corporations develop in Islamic Middle Eastern countries the way they did in the West? How well has welfare reform worked? Will selling emissions rights help curb pollution? How widespread is corporate misconduct?
  • Micro Reorganized: The micro material has been thoroughly reorganized. Because much of the material in Chapters 20 (Cost) and 21 (Perfect Competition) overlapped, the author combined the chapters. In addition, many of the graphs in Chapter 23 (Oligopoly) were cut, and the derivation of the shut-down and break-even points in the text of Chapter 20 were placed in an advanced work box. Each paragraph and each problem was held to the same high standard: Is this material comprehendible to most college students? The result is that the micro portion of this book is even more accessible to students, and they will learn and retain more of the material.
