- “Heads Up” sections clarify potentially confusing concepts.
- “Try It” sections encourage students to walk through scenarios related to each concept or idea.
- “Case in Point” sections use real-world applications to harness economics concepts in reality.
In writing Principles of Economics, Rittenberg and Tregarthen aimed to present economics as a unified discipline, rather than a bewildering array of seemingly unrelated topics. The authors present microeconomics and macroeconomics around integrating themes, such as the marginal decision rule and the model of aggregate demand and aggregate supply.
