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.
I took a 6 week class so I only wish I had the time to soak it in much more
I hesitate to give 5 stars because I think that some of the "advanced thinking" questions do not have one correct answer. Students could provide answers in a variety of ways that are correct and the answer key does not always acknowledge this fact.
Regardless, I think it's a VERY useful study tool and I plan to encourage my students to buy it as a way to achieve high grades in both macro and micro.
