The new edition of this popular text combines a clear, concise presentation of basic micro- and macroeconomic theory with up-to-date coverage of the U.S. economic recovery as well as international issues. The author's treatment of current debates over banking regulation, fiscal issues, and other hot topics is always well-balanced. Many students in an introductory economics course are non-majors, so Carbaugh keeps things light and friendly and uses lots of applications to hold the reader's interest. There is a free online Study Guide for students.

An Instructor's Manual and Test Bank are available online for adopters.
