When asked to describe this text, most Lipsey readers use the same word: precise. The authors do not gloss over subjects when presenting economic ideas; rather, they offer a patient explanation of the concept and back it up with the latest research and data. Taken separately, neither theory nor data alone can give students a true understanding of the idea, but when combined these elements give students a complete view of economics in the real world.
The Thirteenth Edition is significantly revised to reflect the latest advancements in the field, including major updates to monetary policy, globalization issues, and hot research areas like experimental economics. Economic debates are explored for each major concept, so students learn to analyze policy intuitively and from an economic perspective.
For today’s student on the go, this portable version of Economics is three-hole punched so students can take only what they need to class, incorporate their own notes, and save money! Each Books à la Carte text arrives with a laminated study card, perfect for students to use when preparing for exams, plus access to MyEconLab in CourseCompass™ .
MyEconLab in CourseCompass™ provides additional optional customization and communication tools. Instructors who teach distance-learning courses or very large lecture sections find the CourseCompass™ format useful because they can upload course documents and assignments, customize the order of chapters, and use communication features such as Digital Dropbox and Discussion Board.
