Overview

Authors James D. Gwartney, Richard L. Stroup, Russell S. Sobel, and David Macpherson, believe that a course on principles of economics should focus on the power and relevance of the economic way of thinking. It is this belief and corresponding writing approach that has made Economics: Private and Public Choice one of South Western most solid and enduring texts. Throughout this text, the authors integrate applications and real-world data in an effort to make the basic concepts of economics come alive for the reader.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This book/CD-ROM text seeks to make economics understandable to freshman and sophomore undergraduates and to illustrate the relevance of economics in daily life. Core chapters cover material usually taught in economics principles courses, and include short units (designed for one class period) on topics such as the future of social security, and readings which highlight the organizational and institutional factors that underlie economic prosperity. The CD-ROM contains a graphing workshop and animated tutorials, interactive graphing exercises, video lectures on difficult topics, and video news segments. Gwartney teaches economics at Florida State University. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
