Overview

Widely renowned for its seamless integration of textbook and video learning, Economics U$A is one of the most successful telecourses ever produced.

Carefully integrated with 28 half-hour video programs produced by the Educational Film Center in Annandale, Virginia, the text accessibly frames the concepts and issues students need to gain a thorough understanding of modern economics. Each video episode features original and archival film footage, newspaper clippings, graphics, animation, and expert commentary. One-third of the videos have been updated for the Seventh Edition.
