Mandel's "Economics: The Basics" combines the traditional news values of immediacy and impact with a layer of educational explanation to provide a window into what's happening in the current economy. Michael Mandel, the former Chief Economist for BusinessWeek magazine, now Chief Economist at Visible Economy LLC, writes in a journalistic style, drawing upon news articles and experience throughout the text to present economic concepts in a way that is understandable, relevant, and exciting for a broad audience. The 2nd edition's core approach focuses on developing a student's economic literacy without overwhelming and providing a window into what's happening in the economy right now including globalization and the aftermath of the financial crisis.
