This is a general textbook used for economics courses covering Microeconomic Policy, and other similar courses. This book talks about values and equity that determine government economic policy. It also deals with externalities, informational asymmetries, corporate responsibility issues, property rights, etc.
I read this textbook as a supplement to my university Microeconomic Policy course. The book has a conversational tone to it, and it is very general - it gives general examples and graphs, and it goes broadly over concepts. The textbook seems to address people that have not taken the basic economics courses (i.e. principles of microeconomics and macroeconomics). It significantly recaps many of the macroeconomics concepts such as money supply, monetary and fiscal policy, and the quantity theory of money.
It's an easy read and a general overview of government economic policy.
