HASH(0x9e0d74bc) out of 5 stars SINCERE AUTHORS June 27 2012
By newtony - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I use this book to teach about US economics in at an American School in Nigeria. I will say I am very impressed with the authors and publishers. he book is very easy to understand for a person like me. My 17 year olds too find it easy to read. Opinions are logically presented and there is no burden of statistics which many writers use to impress or confuse readers.
The hardcover book came very clean and I am proud of the previous user.

I really like the layout of this book. It has good pictures and economics puzzles.
Most importantly, it's easy (and fun!) to read.
HASH(0x9e0d76cc) out of 5 stars Same level as Samuelson and Mankiw March 9 2014
By Khalid Ikram - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is an excellent textbook, clearly written, that one could safely put in the company of those by Samuelson and Mankiw. In some ways, for example, in the macroeconomic section, it goes beyond the material in Mankiw. thus, the present book has a good discussion on estimating the potential rate of GDP growth of an economy that, at least in my edition of Mankiw, does not. The fiscal policy part of the discussion is also a bit stronger.
