Overview


The economy is tough -- but economics doesn't have to be! Let Roger Arnold's MACROECONOMICS open up the world of economic analysis for your students. With more detailed coverage of the financial and economic crisis than any other principles text on the market, fun and innovative pedagogy, easy customization, and fully integrated digital and course management options, MACROECONOMICS is the perfect solution for any classroom. With intriguing pop culture examples, the text bolsters student interest by illustrating the unexpected places Macroeconomics occurs, and how economic forces link events to our lives and are part of your student's world 24/7. Building on the Video Office Hours lectures developed by Roger Arnold for the Tenth edition, the Eleventh edition features two entirely new video assets - Video Questions and Problems and Working with Diagrams. Video Questions and Problems videos walk the student through a worked problem, similar to those found at the end of each chapter, providing an ideal study tool for reference as students work through assigned problems. Working with Diagrams videos demonstrate key concepts in short (averaging 3-5 minutes) video pieces that students can play and replay to see how the graphs and other diagrams are built. Ideal for self-study or for online courses, the complete video assets available with MACROECONOMICS provide even greater flexibility for instructors. The Eleventh Edition is integrated with powerful resources, such as Aplia, CengageNOW, and Cengage's CourseMate for Macroeconomics, which provide unsurpassed planning and management tools, like homework that is automatically assigned, graded, and recorded online, or tracking of students' time spent with online resources. With new content reflecting a changing economy and new resources addressing the needs of a changing classroom, MACROECONOMICS, 11e is an ideal text for principles courses.
