Description of this Book

McConnell, Brue and Flynn's Economics: Brief Edition, 2/e comes from the same author team as the market-leading Principles of Economics textbook. Economics: Brief Edition tailors the core concepts from proven leader Economics, 19th edition to create a concise introduction to the course that is distinct in purpose, style, and coverage. Like the 19th edition, Economics: Brief Edition, 2/e continues to be innovative while teaching students in a clear, unbiased way. Content and pedagogy have 3 main goals: help the beginning student master the principles essential for understanding the economizing problem, specific economic issues, and the policy alternatives; help the student understand and apply the economic perspective and reason accurately and objectively about economic matters; and promote a lasting student interest in economics and the economy.
