McEachern “teaches by example.” It is the text that uses examples and illustrations that students will recognize when they show up for class the first day because they already have at least 17 years of personal experience with economic choices, institutions, and events. Easy to understand and filled with lively real-world examples, MACROECONOMICS: A CONTEMPORARY INTRODUCTION, Tenth Edition, is your ideal introduction to the principles of macroeconomics. McEachern approaches the course by using many of the macroeconomic concepts that you’ve likely encountered in your own life experiences. These life experiences are then explained as economic concepts through interesting case studies and focused examples. The case studies are found throughout the text, giving you genuine insight into how economic principles work in the real world -- and the recent economic crisis is covered throughout. McEachern’s approachable style is enhanced by the powerful learning tools you’ll find on Aplia, a web-based educational program designed to improve your understanding and your grade.

McEachern teaches by example. It is the text that uses examples and illustrations that students will recognize when they show up for class the first day because they already have at least 17 years of personal experience with economic choices, institutions, and events. Taking a just-in-time approach by introducing material just as it is needed to develop an argument, MICROECONOMICS: A CONTEMPORARY INTRODUCTION, Ninth Edition, truly leads by example.
