Book Description

2007
In recent years, innovative texts in mathematics, science, foreign languages, and other fields have achieved dramatic pedagogical gains by abandoning the traditional encyclopedic approach in favor of teaching a shorter list of core principles in depth. Two well-respected writers and researchers, Bob Frank and Ben Bernanke, have shown that the less-is-more approach affords similar gains in introductory economics. The authors introduce a coherent short list of core principles and reinforce them by illustrating and applying each in numerous contexts. Students are periodically asked to apply these principles and to answer related questions and exercises. The BRIEF editions were developed for instructors who appreciate core principles approach, and desire a more manageable amount of content and slightly less rigor. In the brief editions, the authors made careful choices of material to eliminate and condense, in order to produce of more concise coverage.

About the Author

Robert H. Frank received his B.S. in mathematics from Georgia Tech in 1966, then taught math and science for two years as a Peace Corps Volunteer in rural Nepal. He received his M.A. in statistics from the University of California at Berkeley in 1971, and his Ph.D. in economics in 1972, also from U.C. Berkeley. He is the Goldwin Smith Professor of Economics at Cornell University, where he has taught since 1972 and where he currently holds a joint appointment in the department of economics and the Johnson Graduate School of Management. During leaves of absence from Cornell, he served as chief economist for the Civil Aeronautics Board from 1978 to 1980 and was a Fellow at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences in 1992-93. He has published on a variety of subjects, including price and wage discrimination, public utility pricing, the measurement of unemployment spell lengths, and the distributional consequences of direct foreign investment. For the past several years, his research has focused on rivalry and cooperation in economic and social behavior. His books on these themes include Choosing the Right Pond: Human Behavior and the Quest for Status (Oxford University Press, 1985) and Passions Within Reason: The Strategic Role of the Emotions (W.W.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Essential Text for Would-Be Economists 27 Sep 2002
Format:Hardcover
This fairly meaty companion to economics degree courses provides a thorough grounding in all the major principles of economics, from game theory to fiscal policy, greatly reducing the number of lectures you need to attend and increasing the amount of 'lie-ins' you can get away with. Whether you're an absolute beginner in the field or an economics 'know-it-all', this text will provide you with ample information to succeed in your degree. The format also provides attractive reading and the 'naturalist examples' are useful real-life applications of the basic principles, allowing the reader to utilise the information as they learn. For those looking for an easily accessible text, this book is structured so that you have no need to read what you're uninterested in!
Luckily, this text is a hardback, since the amount of use it will receive will mean it gets a little worn! Principles of Economics is the essential text for would-be economists or just those with a slight interest in the field.
