About this item
Designed for a single-semester undergraduate course, this introductory economics textbook updates traditional macroeconomics to encompass twenty-first century concerns. In contrast to standard texts, the book starts with the question of human well-being, and then examines how economic activities can contribute to or detract from it.
Macroeconomics in Context covers standard macroeconomic concepts and models, and shows how they apply to such critical issues as ecological sustainability, distributional equity, the quality of employment, and the adequacy of living standards.
In language that is clear and compelling, the book's discussions of historical, institutional, political, and social factors encourage students to engage with the subject matter. An Instructor's Resource Manual, a Test Bank, and a Student Study Guide are available online to instructors who adopt the text. Updated figures and new PowerPoint slides are now available free online for students and instructors. The updated figures, prepared by co-author Julie Nelson, include new data on unemployment, inflation, deficits, and investment from the 2007-09 recession in the U.S. A PowerPoint presentation on the 2008 mortgage crisis in the U.S. is also available.
