For the one semester freshman/sophomore course in principles of macroeconomics.This modern text has a strong foundation in demand and supply. Its thoughtful coverage of change in demand vs. change in quantity demanded (also in supply coverage) enables students to better visualize and truly understand the difference between these 2 fundamental concepts. A balanced presentation between long run and short run topics allow professors to cover the important issues of growth early, and gives them the flexibility to cover Keynesian material when they feel it is important.
