Principles of Macroeconomics
Designed for undergraduate courses in principles of economics, this text uses the "Stories, Graphs, and Equations" approach in an attempt to make economic concepts accessible and relevant to students with various learning styles. It includes explanations and supplements packages.This text presents the core concepts of economics in three ways: first, each major concept is presented in the context of a simple intuitive story or illustrative example in words followed by a numerical illustration or table. Second, the numerical example is presented graphically. And finally, where appropriate, equations are used, presenting the material in different formats.
