The Fifth Edition strengthens the connection between basic economic principles and students' lives by balancing an accessible, lively writing style with a unique pedagogical framework. Arranged according to the proven Fundamental Questions learning system, each chapter highlights 5–10 fundamental precepts through questions which appear at the beginning and are repeated in the margins to mark the relevant content. End-of-chapter summaries refer back to these questions to create a consistent framework of instruction.
