About the Author

Sean is an assistant professor of economics at Scripps College in Claremont, California. He is the author of the international best seller "Economics for Dummies" as well as the coauthor, along with Campbell McConnell and Stanley Brue, of the world's best-selling college economics textbook, "Economics: Principles, Problems, and Policies".

An avid martial artist, Sean is a former Aikido national champion and has coached five of his students to U.S. national aikido titles.

A recurring commentator on FOX Business, ABC News, and NPR, Sean holds a B.A. in economics from the University of Southern California and a Ph.D. in economics from U.C. Berkeley, where he completed his dissertation under the supervision of Nobel Laureate George Akerlof.

Sean's research focuses on the often puzzling and seemingly irrational behavior of stock market investors, but he's also investigated topics as wide-ranging as the factors that affect customer tipping behavior at restaurants and why you see a lot of unionized workers only in certain industries.

Not too much has changed between the 17th & 18th editions of this book. It is way overpriced for saying essentially the same things that all economics books say.. not to mention it's not even a hard cover. If you can, try getting the 17th edition, it will save you a ton of money.

I have used the McConnell book for my MACROECONOMICS courses for the past 20 years and have obviously rated it highly. I cannot stand the 19e McConnell, et al book. Initially, I looked it over briefly - a BIG mistake. I saw that the first three chapters which comprise my first exam, were virtually unchanged. Then I checked out the middle and latter parts and they seemed to be virtually unchanged so I told my prospective students they could use either the 18th or 19th editions. I was (probably am) planning to use the 19e this fall, although I may give up teaching altogether. Later, when I happened to check out chapters 4 & 5, I was appalled. Chapter 4 formerly "The U.S Economy: Private & Public Sectors" is now "Elasticity," which I certainly teach in MICROECONOMICS but just touch upon in MACRO. I have no idea where the former Ch. 4 material went. Chapter 5, formerly "The U.S. in the Global Economy" also seems to have disappeared. I thought highly of that chapter also.

The 18th Edition had added two chapters. Chapter 6, "An Intro. to Macro." was a fantastic addition which I embraced wholeheartedly. Ch. 17 on "Financial Economics" was a welcome addition since students are always confused initially when $$$ or gold is not considered to be capital but a pipe wrench is. However, the latter part of the chapter got very complex although the "time value of money" is quite useful. Still, I do not take the time to cover it properly and just give lip service to the concepts I mentioned. Perhaps my cherished material from those two chapters is still hidden in the bowels of 19e but so far I haven't found it.

At this point, I am just disappointed in 19e and miss the 18th.

I haven't got too far into this book yet, but from the first few chapters I'm getting an idea of the content. I studied Microeconomics with the Miller book and found it to have more examples, more graphs to explain content. This book, the McConnell book is more descriptive. The one thing I do not like about this book is that there are currently no solutions to the Study Questions at the end of each Chapter. On the plus side this book does have a dedicated website with both different study questions with answers (although limited in number), and also quizzes.
