Brad Schiller's text, "The Economy Today, 11e", is noted for three great strengths: readability, policy orientation, and pedagogy. His accessible writing style engages students and brings some of the excitement of domestic and global economic news into the classroom. Schiller emphasizes how policymakers must choose between government intervention and market reliance to resolve the core issues of what, how, and for whom to produce. This strategic choice is highlighted throughout the full range of micro, macro, and international issues. Every chapter ends with a policy issue that emphasizes the markets vs. government dilemma. And, Schiller packs his chapters with the facts of economic life - real stories and applications.This is a book that teaches economics in a relevant context with careful pedagogy. It is also the only principles text that presents all macro theory in the single consistent context of the AS/AD framework. Schiller, 11e is for students motivated by real-world policy issues who want to become economically literate. This is a book students actually read. Schiller is also known for its cutting-edge and current coverage of today's issues.
This is a great textbook. It's an international edition so I paid less and it's still the exact text that my classmates paid triple for! It's a used book in great condition.
