Overview

Essentials of Economics / Edition 6

For the one-semester survey of economics course, Mankiw now provides an excellent resource for students who are seeing economics for the first time. His two-semester version of the text has received such praise as perhaps the best ever textbook in economic principles. Its no wonder Mankiw's prize project has quickly become one of the most successful books ever to be published in the college marketplace. The author's conversational writing style is superb for presenting the politics and science of economic theories to tomorrow's decision-makers. Because Mankiw wrote it for the students, the book stands out among all other texts by intriguing students to apply an economic way of thinking in their daily lives.
