This text is the first book explicitly designed for the one-term, principles-level course covering both micro and macroeconomics, and can also be used for two-term or full-year courses where a very concise, focused treatment is desired. This is NOT a cursory "survey" text; rather, it carefully selects and fully explains all of the core topics essential to the principles course with a rigorous and analytical treatment of all introductory economic concepts. It presents economics as a unified subject in which the macroeconomics chapters build on, and flow from, the key microeconomic principles established in the first half of the book.

Marc Lieberman is currently Clinical Associate Professor of Economics at New York University. He has presented his extremely popular Principles of Economics course at Vassar College, Harvard University, the University of California/Santa Cruz, and the University of Hawaii. Lieberman is co-editor and contributor to The Road to Capitalism: Economic Transformation in Eastern Europe and the Former Soviet Union. In his limited spare time, he is an accomplished screenwriter. He co-wrote the script for Love Kills, a recent movie that aired on the USA Cable Network and is now available in video stores around the world.
