Overview

Macroeconomics / Edition 12

An intuitive and grounded approach to economics

Get students to think like economists using the latest policy and data while incorporating global issues. Macroeconomics, 13th Edition builds on the foundation of the previous edition and retains a thorough and careful presentation of the principles of economics. The text emphasizes real-world applications, the development of critical-thinking skills, diagrams renowned for their pedagogy and clarity, and path-breaking technology. Recognizing that some students find graphs hard to work with, the author developed the entire art program with the study and review needs of each individual student in mind.
