Overview

McConnell, Brue, and Flynn’s Macroeconomics, Brief Edition comes from the same author team as the market-leading Principles of Macroeconomics textbook. It continues to be innovative while teaching students in a clear, unbiased way. Like the 18th edition, Macroeconomics, Brief Edition has 3 main goals: help the beginning student master the principles essential for understanding the economizing problem, specific economic issues, and the policy alternatives; help the student understand and apply the economic perspective and reason accurately and objectively about economic matters; and promote a lasting student interest in economics and the economy. Although the Brief Edition is a derivative of Macroeconomics 18e, is not a cut-and-paste book that simply eliminates several chapters of Macroeconomics 18e and reorders and renumbers the retained content. Instead, Macroeconomics, Brief Edition is a very concise, highly integrated economics textbook that is distinct in purpose, style, and coverage from Macroeconomics 18e.

Meet the Author

Sean is an assistant professor of economics at Scripps College in Claremont, California.

He is the author of the international best seller "Economics for Dummies" as well as the coauthor, along with Campbell McConnell and Stanley Brue, of the world's best-selling college economics textbook, "Economics: Principles, Problems, and Policies".

An avid martial artist, Sean is a former Aikido national champion and has coached five of his students to U.S. national aikido titles.

A recurring commentator on FOX Business, ABC News, and NPR, Sean holds a B.A. in economics from the University of Southern California and a Ph.D. in economics from U.C. Berkeley, where he completed his dissertation under the supervision of Nobel Laureate George Akerlof.

Sean's research focuses on the often puzzling and seemingly irrational behavior of stock market investors, but he's also investigated topics as wide-ranging as the factors that affect customer tipping behavior at restaurants and why you see a lot of unionized workers only in certain industries.
