Updates incorporate the recent recession and recovery— placing it in historical and theoretical context and not shying away from the controversies surrounding how government responded to it.
All time-sensitive data has been updated, along with over half of all the "Start Up" and "Case and Point" applications being brand new or updated.
In writing Principles of Economics, v. 2.1, Libby Rittenberg and Timothy Tregarthen's aims were simple:
This textbook is suitable for these courses: Economics
This textbook is suitable for 2 and 4 year institutions.
Sometimes, students struggle to understand confusing concepts or ideas. Each concept is covered with a ”Heads Up“ to ward off confusion from the very beginning.
Hands-on learning is highly effective. A ”You Try It“ section gives students the reins to walk through economic scenarios themselves, ensuring they also stay on top of important concepts
A ”Case in Point“ section in each chapter uses a real-world application to harness the concept in reality, emphasizing the usefulness of economics.
