OverviewEconomics for a better world Built to focus on what matters to students in todayâ€™s high-tech, globalized world, Dean Karlan and Jonathan Morduchâ€™s Macroeconomics represents a new generation of products, optimized for digital delivery and available with best-in-class adaptive study resources in McGraw-Hill Connect. This text combines a familiar curriculum with material from new research and applied areas such as finance, behavioral economics, and the political economy. Students and faculty will find content that breaks down barriers between what takes place in the classroom and what happens in our nation and broader world, with applications that are driven by empirical evidence, data, and research. The second edition fulfills four fundamental commitments: â€¢ Shows students how economics connects to important ideas and issues in the worldâ€¢ Teaches principles as evidence-based tools for tackling real situationsâ€¢ Appeals to todayâ€™s globally-engaged and socially aware studentsâ€¢ Provides a balanced, data-driven view Karlan and Morduch show students that economics is a tool to better oneâ€™s own life and promote better public and business policies in the world. At the same time, this second edition challenges students to reach their own conclusions about what â€œbetterâ€ really means.
