Frank/Bernanke provides students with the core principles of macroeconomics and reinforces these principles through numerous examples. The new edition continues to engage students through an active learning approach by using vivid examples, clear, concise explanations, and in-text exercises with solutions. The worked examples combined with the parallel exercises are a critical element of this approach. Students are also encouraged to look at the world from an economic perspective through the "Economic Naturalist" feature, which is designed to show students the power of cost-benefit analysis when looking at why things happen in the real world. The new third Canadian edition of Frank/Bernanke has been reorganized and now provides coverage of the short run issues first.
