For courses in the principles of macroeconomics.
An evidence-based approach to economics
Throughout Macroeconomics,3rd Edition, authors Daron Acemoglu, David Laibson, and John List use real economic questions and data to help students learn about the world around them. Taking a fresh approach, they use the themes of optimization, equilibrium, and empiricism to not only illustrate the power of simple economic ideas, but also to explain and predict what’s happening in today’s society. Each chapter begins with an empirical question that is relevant to the life of a student and is later answered using data in the Evidence-Based Economics feature. As a result of the text’s practical emphasis, students learn to apply economic principles to guide the decisions they make in their own daily lives
