Now you can "teach by example" with the unique approach to economics found only in McEachern's acclaimed ECONOMICS: A CONTEMPORARY INTRODUCTION, 11E. The text uses examples and illustrations that your students will recognize when they show up for class the first day, because they already have at least 17 years of personal experience with economic choices, institutions, and events. This book truly leads by example, taking a "just-in-time" approach that introduces material just as it is needed to develop an argument. Clear and interesting exposition combines with case studies, recent research findings, and a focused design. Relevant case studies are integrated into the flow of each chapter. Each chapter includes a one-page case study in the printed book as well as a second case study online. The book's well-crafted approach is enhanced with resources, such as Aplia and MindTap, that help improve student understanding and help you streamline tasks and save valuable time.

About the Author:

Dr. William A. McEachern began teaching large sections of economic principles shortly after joining the University of Connecticut. Several years later he began offering teaching workshops around the country. The University of Connecticut Alumni Association conferred on him its Faculty Excellence in Teaching Award in 2000. He earlier won the Association's award for Distinguished Public Service. Dr. McEachern has published books and monographs on public finance, public policy, and industrial organization, including MANAGERIAL CONTROL AND PERFORMANCE (D.C. Heath and Company). His research has also appeared in edited volumes, such as READINGS IN PUBLIC CHOICE ECONOMICS (University of Michigan Press), INTERNATIONAL HANDBOOK ON TEACHING AND LEARNING ECONOMICS (Edward Elgar Publishing), and RETHINKING ECONOMIC PRINCIPLES (Irwin Publishing), He has also published in a variety of refereed journals, including Economic Inquiry, National Tax Journal, Quarterly Review of Economic and Business, Journal of Industrial Economics, Kyklos, Econ Journal Watch, and Public Choice. His principles of economics textbooks have been translated into Spanish, Chinese, and Bahasa Indonesia, and have been adapted for Australia and for India. He is the founding editor of THE TEACHING ECONOMIST, a newsletter that for a quarter of a century has focused on teaching economics at the college level. Dr. McEachern has advised federal, state, and local governments on policy matters and has been quoted in media such as the New York Times, Times of London, Wall Street Journal USA Today and Reader's Digest. He, earned an undergraduate degree with honors from College of the Holy Cross, served three years as a U.S. Army officer, and earned an M.A. and Ph.D. in economics from the University of Virginia.

Review:

"I have used Aplia for many years. I believe that the assignments are a very effective learning tool when used correctly."

"[To enable positive outcomes, I use] anything that encourages [students] to be active learners. I use Aplia for homework and conceptual questions during class to encourage participation."

"Almost across the board, students using MindTap improved on the main learning objectives of the class ...I've never seen any results like this."

"MindTap was very useful - it was easy to follow and everything was right there."

"I'm definitely more engaged because of MindTap."
