Top Customer Reviews
Throughout the book, Mankiw highlights differences in opinion between economists and "laymen," and to examine where those differences come from. For instance, rent ceilings are a popular policy that 93% of economists (as of a 1992 survey) say "reduce both the quantity and the quality of available housing." Mankiw explains why economists are so sure of this in compelling, intuitive terms, without demanding that students master calculus or statistical methods.
Interested students should also subscribe to Greg Mankiw's excellent blog to keep up with the latest news in the ever-evolving field of economics.
Easily five stars except for the problems noted.
