Makes economics stick. Meets students where they are. Principles of Economics-Dirk Mateer Makes economics stick. These exams are from Professor William Wheaton's course site, Principles of Microeconomics, Fall , and are used with permission.
Publisher: University of Minnesota Libraries Publishing. The textbook covers all the topics that would typically be covered in a one semester principles of macro course. Measurement of production, employment, prices, interest rates. Short run cycles and long run growth. Theoretical perspectives Comprehensiveness rating: 5 see less. Theoretical perspectives from the Keynesian and classical perspectives.
International topics trade, globalization. The index looks reasonable. It appears accurate to me. I teach principles of macro every semester so I am familiar with the basic content.
I have not used it in a class yet, so I have not been through this book in detail. The information is up to date as of I assume that this will be periodically updated. Not much has changed in principles of macro recently, so keeping this text current will not be much of an issue until the next recession occurs. This is based on Tim Taylors book they bought the rights so the original text was written by a respected economist.
It is clearly written and undergrads should find this engaging and accessible. The jargon is minimal. The terminology and framework are completely standard for a principles of macro text. Again, I have taught principles of macro every semester for the last years, and the terminology and framework here are what would be expected.
No long blocks of text. Frequent and clear subheadings. If anything, the chapters appear to be quite short. Some of the chapters appear to be approximately one 75 minute lecture of material. Very typical organization for a principles of macro text. I have used several two in the last 3 years - John Taylor and Coppock and Mateer , and they all have the same basic organization. I did not see any grammatical errors. I did not read every chapter, but I'm sure Tim Taylor's book was thoroughly edited when it was being published by a for-profit publishing house.
Examples are drawn fro all over the world, and the photos are inclusive. I did not see any culturally insensitive passages.
Each chapter has about multiple choice questions. This probably not enough for use in a large enrollment section - most test banks from for-profit publishers contain at least multiple choice questions per chapter.
The multiple questions all look fine to me. They basically contain some of the figures, photos, and tables from the text. It will take some time and effort for instructors to develop complete PowerPoint slides for this book. Having spent a bit of time working my way through other textbooks to arrive at one that seemed to fit my style of teaching, I am pleasantly surprised at the comprehensiveness of this text. It covers all the main principles that would typically be It covers all the main principles that would typically be covered, but also includes some chapters on subjects that would be great to implement given enough time.
At the very least, they are a resource for students that have taken a greater interest in the course work. I am speaking specifically on the chapters toward the end relating to poverty and income inquality. Additionally, the book contains a good review of graphing and some of the mathematics utilized within the book.
I will not suggest that I am providing a thorough review in accuracy, but from what I have reviewed, nothing seemed remiss. Perhaps a typo here or there - not enough to interrupt the flow of the material. But everything seemed in order from a content perspective. The ability to update material would be the part most concerning to me as I do not know the updating practices for the authors.
There seems to be good coverage of more recent events, and certainly there is good coverage going further back. I do not take issue with it as it stands. Even with the more expensive textbooks, it is the obligation of the professor or lecturer to keep students current while applying the principles being taught.
I think that what I appreciate most with the textbook is that it seems to be written in a very straightforward manner. One common complaint that I hear from students is that textbook explanations can be tedious to get through. Given all the examples that are provided, and all the sample problems utilized, in addition to the actual writing, I think that students, including international students, would find this a generally approachable source. Again, with the caveat that I have not read through every single part of the book, in my examination of the text, I did not enounter any inconsistencies within the book.
Also, I felt that the presentation seemed consistent, yet more comprehensive, than most textbooks I have utilized. The breakdown of the text makes it very approachable from a learner standpoint. It is clear what the objectives are within each small section, and the objectives never seem overwhelming. This is useful from a teaching standpoint to keep students from feeling overwhelmed. The organization of the book does not align with the current way that I teach. While I am open to making adjustments, I do think that the order of some chapters could be rearranged.
For example, the topic of economic growth could easily be combined with development rather than treated as an afterthought. With an increasing focus on internationalization in higher education, separating the two suggests a sense of other from my perspective.
I find it confusing to have GDP included in the chapter on inflation and unemployment, but then treated separately afterward. There were a few distractions for me in the layout that seemed to be issues with how it displayed on my computer. These were not so serious that they would prevent me from utilizing the materials.
I have not had the chance to see how it presents on an ipad, tablet or phone. I certainly did not encounter anything that seemed culturally insensitive or offensive.
I would encourage greater use of international examples, particularly when looking at policy tools. The book is U. Internationalization of the curriculum seems to be an increasingly popular theme. That said, the book certainly utilizes enough international examples for me to consider it. I am pleasantly surprised by this book. As I prepare for the academic year, I will certainly consider using this text. I would need to get a better idea of how easily one can access the specific materials needed on demand.
Recognizing that a course in economics may seem daunting to some students, we have tried to make the writing clear and engaging. Clarity comes in part from the intuitive presentation style, but we have also integrated a number of pedagogical features that we believe make learning economic concepts and principles easier and more fun.
These features are very student-focused. In particular, chapters generally consist of three main content sections that break down a particular topic into manageable parts. Each content section contains not only an exposition of the material at hand but also learning objectives, summaries, examples, and problems.
Each chapter is introduced with a story to motivate the material and each chapter ends with a wrap-up and additional problems. Our goal is to encourage active learning by including many examples and many problems of different types. Start Up—Chapter introductions set the stage for each chapter with an example that we hope will motivate readers to study the material that follows. These essays, on topics such as the value of a college degree in the labor market or how policy makers reacted to a particular economic recession, lend themselves to the type of analysis explained in the chapter.
We often refer to these examples later in the text to demonstrate the link between theory and reality. Learning Objectives—These succinct statements are guides to the content of each section. Instructors can use them as a snapshot of the important points of the section. After completing the section, students can return to the learning objectives to check if they have mastered the material.
Heads Up! After our combined teaching experience of more than fifty years, we have seen the same mistakes made by many students. This feature provides additional clarification and shows students how to navigate possibly treacherous waters.
Key Terms—Defined within the text, students can review them in context, a process that enhances learning. Try It! They are designed to give students a clear signal as to whether they understand the material before they go on to the next topic. Cases in Point—These essays included at the end of each content section illustrate the influence of economic forces on real issues and real people.
Unlike other texts that use boxed features to present interesting new material or newspaper articles, we have written each case ourselves to integrate them more clearly with the rest of the text. Summary—In a few paragraphs, the information presented in the chapter is pulled together in a way that allows for a quick review of the material.
End-of-chapter concept and numerical problems—These are bountiful and are intended to check understanding, to promote discussion of the issues raised in the chapter, and to engage students in critical thinking about the material. Included are not only general review questions to test basic understanding but also examples drawn from the news and from results of economics research.
Some have students working with real-world data. Reviews Learn more about reviews. Content Accuracy rating: 5 It appears accurate to me.

The view was of another tower across a lane. Eve had never seen her so discomposed. Props, as if it were just inside his head all along. All of the legends of the garden mention four rivers. Have him assume command of the troops in my absence.

Он знал, что где-то за этой витиеватой резной дверью находится кольцо. Вопрос национальной безопасности. За дверью послышалось движение, раздались голоса. Он постучал. Послышался голос с сильным немецким акцентом: - Ja.
Умница, да к тому же единственная женщина, не упускавшая случая с ним пококетничать. - Как твои дела. - Не жалуюсь. Джабба вытер губы. - Ты на месте.
Пистолет упал на пол. Оба противника оказались на полу. Беккеру удалось оторваться от убийцы, и он рванулся к двери. Халохот шарил по полу, нащупывая пистолет.
Он смотрел на нее с недоумением. - Доктор, - повторила. - Скажи первое, что придет в голову.
Лиланд Фонтейн решил, что с него довольно этого зрелища. - Выключите, - приказал. - Выключите эту чертовщину.
Попав по назначению, программа фиксировала свое местонахождение в Интернете и передавала его в АНБ, после чего бесследно уничтожала маяк. Начиная с того дня, анонимные переадресующие компании перестали быть для АНБ источником серьезных неприятностей. - Вы сможете его найти? - спросил Стратмор.
Проверку шифровалки службой безопасности Хейл допустить не. Он выбежал из помещения Третьего узла и направился к люку. Чатрукьяна во что бы то ни стало следовало остановить.
Из какого именно места в Штатах? - спросил. - Они ищут, господин. - Очень хорошо. Сообщите, когда узнаете. Телефонистка поклонилась и вышла.
Беккер мчался, не видя ничего вокруг, постоянно сворачивал, избегая прямых участков. Шаги неумолимо приближались. В голове у него не было ни единой мысли - полная пустота. Он не знал ни где он находится, ни кто его преследует и мчался, подгоняемый инстинктом самосохранения.
Потеряв ориентацию, двигалась, вытянув перед собой руки и пытаясь восстановить в памяти очертания комнаты.
