Economics made easy. Economics A Self-Teaching Guide Economics: A Self-Teaching Guide gives you introductory economics with a difference: essential math and graph skills are taught right at the beginning, so you’re clear about principles and equations from the start. The detailed discussion of micro- and macroeconomics that follows flows naturally and easily without requiring advanced mathematics. It makes a perfect introduction, review or supplement for anyone who wants a basic knowledge of our economy and how it works. In clear, easy-to-follow language, the book covers every component of the U.S. economy, with a brief review of economic history since World War I. Material is presented in the step-by-step, self-paced format that has made Wiley’s Self-Teaching Guides so popular. Economics: A Self-Teaching Guide covers economic resources, macro- and microeconomics, gross national product, the economic sectors, inflation and unemployment, fiscal policy, banking and monetary policy, economic theory, demand and supply, and much more. There are exercises throughout the material and a final self-test at the end of the text.
