Bade and Parkin have changed all that for the better. In the book they provide a serious yet accessible economics course that is focused on helping students:
  • understand the basic principles of economics
  • connect these principles to today's economic issues
  • develop a lasting interest in economics as a relevant part of their own lives.
    Each chapter focuses on a limited number of core concepts, to allow students to thoroughly explore, analyze, and review a concept before moving on to the next one.

    Learning objectives are explicitly linked at the beginning of each chapter to the core concepts; checkpoints maintain and refer back to these specific links.

    Chapters are formatted with a carefully balanced blend of text and graphics that provide visual clarification without clutter or unnecessary distractions.

    The writing style throughout is fluid and conversational, reinforcing the underlying principle that economics is an everyday issue that can be addressed in everyday language.

  • "...the authors' approach succeeds in simplifying complex economic ideas and brings those concepts to the level of a student who may have a serious allergy to economic instruction, and at the same time maintains enough rigor to capture and retain the interest of a student who plans to take additional courses in economics/finance and business." Charles Okeke, College of Southern Nevada
