Prepare students with a solid understanding of macroeconomic principles and how these principles affect their daily lives with Sexton's unique EXPLORING MACROECONOMICS, 7E. Rather than a traditional encyclopedic text filled with technical details, this book offers a modern, "back-to-basics" approach designed to encourage economic literacy and help students appreciate how macroeconomics impacts life today. The latest edition of this reader-friendly book includes new online learning tools, a visually appealing design, and the latest captivating content to encourage students to read and master the material. Packed with examples from current events and pop culture, EXPLORING MACROECONOMICS makes macroeconomic concepts less intimidating while conveying the real-world relevance of what students are learning. A wealth of helpful resources, including the leading Aplia online homework solution, MindTap online learning resources, and Write Experience, work together to further demonstrate macroeconomic applications in today's world. Throughout this course, the author shares and inspires in students the same excitement he felt when he took his first economics class.
