More about Tim Taylor’s Principles of Economics 2e (and Macro/Micro splits): Taylor 2e is a mainstream book; it covers all the main topics in a balanced way Taylor writes about the subject with no ideological axe to grind. Book is remarkably well written with clear examples; comprehensive, but no fluff. Focus on helping students solve problems – Taylor walks students through the problem-solving process. Coverage of international issues is integrated throughout, not tacked on as an afterthought. Treats the 2008 meltdown conceptually through the use of building blocks: bubbles, the housing market, the lender of last resort, banking, and what the Fed can do (quantitative easing). Careful attention to the budget deficit, the role that government spending can play in stimulating short-term growth, and how to think about the long-term implications. In micro section, "topics" chapters allow faculty to extend and apply analysis in the areas of their choice. Student Problems/Solutions manual is no-nonsense – lots of good problems that require drawing graphs and writing answers.
