About This Edition

From the Publisher


New Features

  • The new, sixth edition of Principles of Microeconomics contains extensively updated coverage of areas impacted by the financial crisis.

  • New "Problems and Applications" appear throughout the sixth edition, providing an effective, integrated way for users to assess their mastery of the material and to review more efficiently for assignments and exams.

Additional Features

  • Created by economist Ron Cronovich of Carthage College, the groundbreaking Premium PowerPoint® Presentations feature chapter-by-chapter slides designed to ease instructors' course preparation time while increasing user involvement in the classroom through interactive examples and applications. The presentations organize lecture points into sections that users can easily digest, animate graphs the way instructors might draw them, and include user "Note Prompt" handouts to facilitate effective notetaking without distracting users from active participation in class.

  • "In the News" boxes include excerpts from many newspaper articles and encourage users to apply basic economic theory to discover how economics can provide an illuminating new perspective and enable greater understanding of world events.

  • "FYI" boxes provide additional material to expand key concepts and discussions by offering a glimpse into the history of economic thought, clarifying technical issues, and exploring supplementary topics you might choose to complement your core lectures.

  • Economic theory is most useful and interesting when applied to actual events and policies, which is why the text contains numerous Case Studies to vividly illustrate the real-world applications and consequences of key principles.

  • "Quick Quizzes" follow each major section to help users check their comprehension of what they just learned and to focus their review when preparing for exams.

  • Each chapter contains a variety of problems and applications that encourage users to apply the material they have learned. These practical, interesting activities serve equally well as homework assignments and starting points for lively classroom discussions.

Review

"I think it is more reader friendly than other texts. In addition, it uses both numeric and/or graphical examples, which is very useful for the students."

"We used to use Case and Fair's text. Mankiw seems to be a better text because it actually follows through with giving applications to what he includes in the book. For example, there is much better material in Mankiw about consumer surplus, producer surplus, government policies and interventions in the market."

"Very student friendly text. Makes economics easy to understand. Some of the other texts would take a lot of reading to explain an idea."

More About the Author

N. Gregory Mankiw is Professor of Economics at Harvard University. As a student, he studied economics at Princeton University and MIT. As a teacher, he has taught macroeconomics, microeconomics, statistics, and principles of economics. He even spent one summer long ago as a sailing instructor on Long Beach Island.

Professor Mankiw is a prolific writer and a regular participant in academic and policy debates. His research includes work on price adjustment, consumer behavior, financial markets, monetary and fiscal policy, and economic growth. His published articles have appeared in academic journals, such as the "American Economic Review", "Journal of Political Economy", and "Quarterly Journal of Economics", and in more widely accessible forums, such as "The New York Times", "The Washington Post", "The Wall Street Journal", and "Fortune".

He has written two popular textbooks--the intermediate-level textbook Macroeconomics (Worth Publishers) and the introductory textbook Principles of Economics (South-Western/Thomson). Principles of Economics has sold over a million copies and has been translated into twenty languages.

In addition to his teaching, research, and writing, Professor Mankiw has been a research associate of the National Bureau of Economic Research, an adviser to the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston and the Congressional Budget Office, and a member of the ETS test development committee for the advanced placement exam in economics. From 2003 to 2005 he served as Chairman of the President's Council of Economic Advisers.

You read through a block of text and then the book displays graphical examples with captions below to help interpret the graph.

This book was a requirement for my intro level microeconomics course. I would like to being by saying that this book is an incredibly easy read. It isn't extremely boring and dry and it isn't extremely fun with little important information. It contains all of the relevant information. The way the book delivers the information is astounding. You read through a block of text and then the book displays graphical examples with captions below to help interpret the graph. The online homework that I had to do along with the book made retaining the important information extremely easy. Economics comes relatively easy to me, but the addition of this great textbook made getting an A almost too easy. I didn't even show up to lecture about one third of the time because Dr. Mankiw does such a well job of explaining the material.

Pros:
Easy Read
Distilled Useful Information
Graphical Representation of Content

Cons:
Nothing

I would highly recommend this textbook. It is probably the most efficient and useful text for learning introductory microeconomics.

This book made my Microeconomics class much easier. The examples given are relevant and interesting. It made attending lecture sessions obsolete.

I purchased a DIFFERENT VERSION of this book, however. Very similar in all aspects (SAME EDITION and paperback) but only goes up to Chapter 17. So check your syllabus to see if your class goes beyond Chapter 17. Otherwise purchase what I purchased: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1285032861. It's much cheaper.

Great book, interesting class. I know many people feel that economics is a boring subject but it didn't seem too bad to me. Maybe this book kept it interesting?

Great for beginners. The only criticism i have of this book is that it should provide the answers to its questions.

I used this book in an intro to microeconomics class. This book is a good place to start out with and has good explanations. It's also a high quality book as it has full color pages and nice size print.
