Since I took this as an online coarse and the professor didn't do any teaching, this book and the EOC questions was the only means for learning this material. The info is easy to understand and uses the Supply & Demand theory greatly to explain many current economic conditions.
Ideal as a suplement for undergraduate economics courses, or as a principal text for a course focused on economics and politcal/ethical reasoning. Shows the flexibility of resoning with economics, which is, for better or worse, the basic "grammar" of contemporary policy debate. Also shows that the political implications of such reasoning are not always easy to predetermine on a liberal/conservative axis. The analysis of economic efficiency, for example, does not preclude one from examining distributional consequences or questions of fairness
The book was good, but some sections are highlighted which I don't mind. I highly recommend the seller. The book didn't have the card read, but it didn't need it.
