Overview

When asked to describe this text, most Lipsey readers use the same word: precise. The authors do not gloss over subjects when presenting economic ideas; rather, they offer a patient explanation of the concept and back it up with the latest research and data. Taken separately, neither theory nor data alone can give readers a true understanding of the idea, but when combined these elements give students a complete view of economics in the real world.

What is Economics?: Economic Issues and Concepts; How Economists Work. An Introduction to Demand and Supply: Demand, Supply, and Price; Elasticity. An Introduction to Macroeconomics: What Macroeconomics Is All About; The Measurement of National Income. The Economy in the Short Run: The Simplest Short-Run Macro Model; Adding Government and Trade to the Simple Macro Model; Aggregate Supply and Aggregate Demand in the Short Run. The Economy in the Long Run: From the Short Run to the Long Run: The Adjustment of Factor Prices; The Difference Between Short-Run and Long-Run Macroeconomics; Long-Run Economic Growth. Money, Banking, and Monetary Policy: Money and Banking; Money, Interest Rates, and Economic Activity; Monetary Policy. Macroeconomic Problems and Policies: Inflation and Disinflation; Unemployment Fluctuations and the NAIRU; Government Debt and Deficits. The United States in the Global Economy: The Gains from International Trade; Trade Policy; Exchange Rates and the Balance of Payments.

For all readers interested in macroeconomics.
