More About This Textbook

Overview

Mandel&#39s Economics: The Basics combines the traditional news values of immediacy and impact with a layer of educational explanation to provide a window into what&#39s happening in the current economy. Michael Mandel, the former Chief Economist for BusinessWeek magazine, now Chief Economist at Visible Economy LLC, writes in a journalistic style, drawing upon news articles and experience throughout the text to present economic concepts in a way that is understandable, relevant, and exciting for a broad audience. The 2nd edition&#39s core approach focuses on developing a student&#39s economic literacy without overwhelming and providing a window into what&#39s happening in the economy right now including globalisation and the aftermath of the financial crisis. Mandel&#39s current examples, journalistic writing style, and accessible presentation of math and graphs will help instructors overcome the common challenges of this course, and make the material more approachable and attractive to a wide range of students.

A series of essays analyzing questions or dilemmas relating to social issues.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Why are there no taxes in Kathmandu? Why is rent in Manhattan so high? And who really pays taxes? These and many other questions about economics of interest to a lay audience form the basis of this excellent set, which is tailor-made for public and high school libraries. The staff editors do not provide an academic treatise on the complex, technical details of economic theory or principles. Instead, they focus on translating economics into an easily understood language, making this work highly useful for students--especially at the high school level. The six volumes cover money, banking, and finance; the citizen and the economy; business operations; the U.S. economy and the world; economic theory; and economic history. With the exception of Volume 5 (on economic theory), the volumes contain numerous well-organized chapters that adequately cover the topic. Volume 5 is arranged as an A-Z encyclopedia of shorter articles about fundamental concepts in economics and can be used as both a reference to the other volumes and a stand-alone reference. Numerous charts, diagrams, figures, and glossy photos are used to clarify concepts, and the set's glossary, reading list, and index are re-produced in each of the six volumes, making for easier cross-referencing. With the ever-changing nature of finance law and regulations, this well-prepared reference set will need regular updates, but it remains the resource of choice on economics for its targeted audience.--Dale Farris, Groves, TX Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
