Overview

Macroeconomics / Edition 2

When looking to bridge the gap between global economic events and their own daily lives, Americans have increasingly turned to Paul Krugman. His lucid grasp of economics in action and his uncanny way of translating complex issues into everyday terms have made him a bestselling author and the most widely read economist writing for the general public today.

That ability to communicate economic concepts clearly and engagingly is at the heart of Macroeconomics, coauthored by Krugman and Robin Wells. The new Second Edition of this bestselling introductory level text (available January 2009) offers more of Krugman’s signature voice, more coverage of policy, and an extraordinary amount of new examples and explanations, as well as a number of content and organizational changes that are meeting the approval of instructors nationwide.
