Principles of Economics https://www.mheducation.com/cover-images/Jpeg_400-high/1260932893.jpeg 8 2022 9781260932898 Principles of Economics focuses on seven core principles to produce economic naturalists through active learning. By eliminating overwhelming detail and focusing on core principles, students from all backgrounds are able to gain a deeper understanding of economics. Focused on helping students become “economic naturalists,” people who employ basic economic principles to understand and explain what they observe in the world around them. COVID-19 pandemic content, analysis, and examples further engage students. With engaging questions, explanations, exercises and videos, the authors help students relate economic principles to a host of everyday experiences such as going to the ATM or purchasing airline tickets. Throughout this process, the authors encourage students to become "economic naturalists." Author developed Learning Glass concept overview videos and Worked Problem videos give students an overview of challenging and important concepts. With new videos and engagement tools in Connect, like Application-Based Activities, alongside SmartBook's adaptive reading experience, the 8th edition enables instructors to spend class time engaging, facilitating, and answering questions instead of lecturing on the basics.

About the Author

Robert Frank

Robert H. Frank 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. 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 behaviour.

Ben Bernanke

2022 Nobel Prize winner, Professor Bernanke received his B.A.  in economics from Harvard University in 1975 and his Ph.D. in economics from MIT in 1979. He taught at the Stanford Graduate School of Business from 1979 to 1985 and moved to Princeton University in 1985, where he was named the Howard Harrison and Gabrielle Snyder Beck Professor of Economics and Public Affairs where he served as chair of the Economics Department. Professor Bernanke is currently a Distinguished Fellow in Residence with the Economic Studies Program at the Brookings Institution.

Professor Bernanke was sworn in on February 1, 2006, as chair and a member of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System; his second term expired January 31, 2014. Professor Bernanke also served as chair of the Federal Open Market Committee,  the  Fed’s principal monetary policymaking body.  Professor Bernanke was also chair of the President’s Council of Economic Advisers from June 2005 to January 2006. Professor Bernanke’s intermediate textbook, with Andrew Abel and Dean Croushore, Macroeconomics, 9th Edition (Addison-Wesley, 2017),  is a best-seller in its field.  He has authored numerous scholarly publications in macroeconomics, macroeconomic history, and finance.  He has done significant research on the causes of the Great Depression, the role of financial markets and institutions in the business cycle, and measurement of the effects of monetary policy on the economy.

Professor Bernanke has held a Guggenheim Fellowship and a Sloan Fellowship, and he is a Fellow of the Econometric Society and of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. He served as the director of the Monetary Economics Program of the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) and as a member of the NBER’s Business Cycle Dating Committee. From 2001 to 2004 he served as editor of the American Economic Review, and as president of the American Economic Association in 2019.  Professor Bernanke’s work with civic and professional groups includes having served two terms as a member of the Montgomery Township (New Jersey) Board of Education.

In 2022, Dr. Bernanke, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics in Stockholm, Sweden.  He was awarded the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel 2022 for his work on bank runs and measures to prevent them. He changed our understanding of economic downturns. Dr. Bernanke’s research showed how bank runs and failed monetary policy prolonged the Great Depression (1929-1939).  Bernanke’s work was invaluable during the 2008 global financial crisis when, as Fed Chair, he applied the lessons from the great depression and pioneered the emergency lending programs the central banks used to address the crisis.

His popular classes are taken by hundreds of students every year, on the Cornell Ithaca campus and, via live videoconferencing, in dozens of cities across the U.S., Canada, and beyond. Professor Heffetz’s research studies the social and cultural aspects of economic behavior, focusing on the mechanisms that drive consumers’ choices and on the links between economic choices, individual well-being, and policymaking.
