Book Description

Shapiro/Greenlaw’s Principles of Economics (PDF) covers the scope and sequence for a 2-semester principles of economics course. The textbook also includes many current examples; including; the controversy among economists over the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare); discussions on the great recession; the recent government shutdown; and the appointment of the United States’ first female Federal Reserve chair; Dr. Janet Yellen. The pedagogical choices; chapter arrangements; and learning objective fulfillment were developed and vetted with feedback from educators dedicated to the project. An outcome is a balanced approach to micro and macroeconomics; to both classical and Keynesian views; and to the theory and application of economics concepts. Current events are treated in a politically-balanced way; as well. This is a full-color textbook in PDF.
