Watch the Recording


Micro/Macro Economics for Life 3E includes a wide range of traditional concepts/techniques for you to choose from.

You choose what to include or exclude in your LT approach.

The Micro/Macro Economics for Life books were originally created to support a literacy-targeted (LT) approach to teaching principles, which focuses on the 80+ percent of students who never take another economics course, while leaving majors just as well off.

This edition now has an expanded and slightly reorganized set of chapters to also support more traditional and model-focused approaches to teaching principles of microeconomics and macroeconomics.
