Contemporary Economics provides solid coverage of fundamental economic topics. Concentrating on the NCEE (National Council on Economic Education) standards, the text moves students from the basic question of "What Is Economics?" through clear and visual explanations of demand, supply, market equilibrium, decision making, market institutions, the national economy, government's role, public policy, and the international economy. This brand new high school instructional package combines comprehensive economic content, sound instructional design, and extensive print and media teaching tools. A wealth of print, video, electronic, and online resources make it simple to address varied learning styles, use formal and informal assessment, and integrate technology where it makes sense to you. Take a tour of the online resources available at the Xtra! Web Site by visiting http://econxtra.swlearning.com. Excellent features allow students to learn economics by experiencing economics.

Exceptional text! Very good use of events from the real world, which will engage students.
We need teaching tools that help us better educate and keep us with the changing times... Contemporary Economics delivers.
South-Western's comprehensive coverage of the national standards is combined with many other great qualities of the package: web-based resources, history connections, activities and projects, personal finance topics, video, technology-based teaching tools, and much more.
A success!... [Contemporary Economics] has the ability to capture the interest of students--that is the most difficult part of teaching economics.
The Span the Globe, Movers and Shakers, and Ethics in Action greatly enhance the text and bring focus to relating economics to real life situations.
