Mandel's M: Economics, The Basics fourth edition focuses on developing a student's economic literacy without overwhelming to provide a window into what's happening in the current economy. Michael Mandel is the former Chief Economist for BusinessWeek magazine, now Senior Fellow at the Mack Institute for Innovation Management at The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, as well as Chief Economic Strategist at the Progressive Policy Institute in Washington, DC. Mandel writes in a journalistic style drawing upon news articles and experience throughout the text to present economic concepts in a way that is understandable, relevant, and exciting for a broad audience. The succinct coverage, magazine-like design, and accessible presentation of math and graphs will help instructors overcome the common challenges of this course, and make the material more approachable and attractive to a wide range of students.
