Summary: This text conveys the principles of macroeconomics in a superb conversational style through a series of extended examples that students relate and respond to. Students are discouraged from simply memorizing facts and engaged in active learning. Maintains a focus on presenting basic concepts in depth and developing the analysis step-by-step, rather than covering hundreds of topics superficially.

ECONOMICS ON THE 'NET margin notes show where to find and how ...show moreto use the best economic resources on the Internet. A Gottheil Web site supports all in-text Internet features as well as providing additional teaching and learning resources.

ECONOMIC CONSULTANTS features place students in the role of the economist for a hypothetical economic research and analysis firm. These features require economic thinking and analysis, asking students to prepare a report addressing fundamental economic issues. Useful Internet addresses are included to help with research and analysis.

CHECK YOUR UNDERSTANDING features raise questions at key junctures in the text for students to assess their comprehension as they read. Arrows then point to the portion of the text that contains the explanation.

PRACTICE TESTS at the end of each chapter present 8-10 multiple choice problems like those typically found on an exam, addressing the key principles in the chapter. Students can quickly assess their understanding of the chapter before moving on to the Questions and Problems, as well as practice for taking exams. Answers are found in a text-ending appendix.

End-of-chapter QUESTIONS tests students' understanding of qualitative concepts covered in the chapter, while new PRACTICE PROBLEMS test their ability with quantitative or graphical techniques.

Exhibits illustrate key graphical concepts in a clear, efficient manner. New KEY GRAPHS highlight those exhibits which demonstrate crucial principles.

ECONOMICS CHAT part openers capture real-life student conversations about economics, demonstrating why the chapters that follow are important.

Focuses on only the key economic principles that students need to understand, and conveys these principles through stories, conversations, explanations, and powerful examples that students relate to and will therefore remember.

ADDED PERSPECTIVE boxes show how the economic principles introduced in the chapter relate to real-world events. Many of them are illustrations of the social science foundations of economics. Most ADDED PERSPECTIVES feature a question for further consideration and Internet addresses for further exploration.

Other pedagogy includes chapter-opening LEARNING OBJECTIVES, in-chapter MARGIN DEFINITIONS, and end-of-chapter CHAPTER REVIEW and KEY TERMS.

"I found the text very easy to understand and relate to the real world. It's the most student-oriented text so far in my education!" Student, Wittenberg University "The author...engages students on an almost personal basis...it should certainly stir the student's interest. The anecdotes and many examples should make for an effective learning experience, and makes the teacher's job that much easier." Alan Kessler, Providence College "Too many textbook writers can't write, but Gottheil's prose is refreshing and unpretentious, sure to engage students and get them involved in the material." Bruce K. Johnson, Centre College "I especially like the frequent use of what I would describe as almost a dialogue format. It is as if the author is carrying on a conversation with the reader...I think this is a style that helps to keep students' attention." Peter Pedroni, Indiana University ...show less
