Using intriguing pop culture examples, the eleventh edition is revised to include the most comprehensive coverage of the financial and economic crisis available in a principles of macroeconomics text. Self-tests help determine how well you're grasping the concepts, and CourseMate for Macroeconomics offers a graphing tutorial, quizzes, videos, and more.
