Principles of Economics Package Syracuse University, 1st edition


Not many economics textbooks open with a poem by Robert Frost, but Principles of Economic Analysis does; it’s just one of the many ways in which this book stands out from the crowd. Using a narrative voice that treats the reader as an adult and offering examples that are often edgy, the author makes the principles of economics come alive in a way that is sure to engage students.

While this text provides a comprehensive overview of micro- and macroeconomic principles, it is designed for a one-semester course, presenting the information in an efficient manner. It both serves the needs of students who will be continuing in economics and those who simply need grounding in the subject as they explore a broader range of social sciences. Whatever their future academic choice, Principles of Economic Analysis gives students the tools they need to ask insightful questions and form thoughtful answers to them.
