For principles of economics and social issues courses. Brief, relevant readings that spark independent thinking and classroom discussions.The Economics of Macro Issues is a collection of brief, relevant readings that spark independent thinking and classroom discussions in Principles of Economics and Social Issues. The text encourages students to apply theoretical discussions to today’s important issues and to gain a deeper understanding of current macroeconomic policy concerns.Key Features:Readings are concise, allowing for easy integration into any principles of economics or issues-based classroom.A correlation guide in the preface illustrates how to integrate topics into different courses. Conversational and informative non-technical writing is geared toward principles-level students and does not require advanced math. Each chapter offers sound economic analysis, leaving the reader with a solid understanding of the concepts at work. Using the latest debates in macroeconomic policy, the authors encourage readers to question their own assumptions and the analysis offered by the media and politicians on key issues.Discussion questions are included for each real-world issue, and an online Instructor’s Manual provides tips for leading classroom dialogues.
