Item description for Introductory Economics by Arleen J. Hoag & John H. Hoag...

This carefully constructed textbook empowers the reader with an understanding of fundamental economic concepts. There are 31 "one-concept" chapters. Each short chapter highlights one economic principle. The student can study one concept and be reinforced by the learning process before proceeding to another. The writing is lucid and at the student's level. Self-review exercises conclude each chapter. The text is well integrated to show the relationship among the basic concepts and to offer a comprehensive overview of economics. The one-concept chapters provide organizational flexibility for the instructor. There are eight modules: The Economic Problem; Price Determination; Behind the Supply Curve; Measuring the Economy, The Level of Income; Money; Trade; and, Conclusion. A study guide is available on line without charge. Each chapter in the text has a corresponding chapter in the study guide as well as an introduction to graphing.

Reviews - What do customers think about Introductory Economics?

Good and bad about this book  Jan 9, 2008
I teach economics at Northeastern Wisconsin Techncial College in Green Bay, Wisconsin, so it's likely that my students are buying this book from this site. As I tell them in the class, economics is about making decisions after considering both costs and benefits. Selecting the textbook is an example of that. The 'costs' are that there's no glossy paper, no color pictures, and no up-to-the minute applications. The 'benefits' are that it is an inexpensive textbook that covers the basics that we need for class, and that it can be supplemented with real world examples from online articles and RSS feeds. I think there is a real benefit to students when they have to read only short, self-contained chapters. But if you're looking for something that attempts to cover absolutely everything and tries to include current events, this is not the book for you. Instead, try one of those 1000-page encyclopedic variations that are good for weight training. I have found that students can't or won't read all of that material anyway!
This book is great  Apr 29, 2006
If you're like me, interested in economics with no previous background in math or econ, then this is the best place to start. I enjoyed it greatly. Yes, it is "dumbed down", so if you do have previous knowledge of math or econ, then this is most certainly not the book for you, but that does not mean that this book is in anyway "dumb". This book is simply what it claims to be, an introduction to the world of economics. It is well written and easy to understand. Though I do believe the Micro section is stronger than the Macro, it is a great place to begin. Consider it an Intro to an Introductory course.
This book is crap!  Feb 8, 2006
This books sucks,I have never had an intro level book read so horribly - they are like all over the place talking about this and then say but we will cover that in a later chaper! Why did they even bring it up! Does not have far enough graph examples - try again!
