Writing about economics at Marginal Revolution taught us to use vivid examples and to get to the point quickly. We brought these skills to our textbook, Modern Principles of Economics.
From the first sentence, The prisoners were dying of scurvy, typhoid fever, and smallpox, but
nothing was killing them more than bad incentives. to the last, no other textbook teaches the economic way of thinking so well or so memorably.
Modern Principles means modern content and modern delivery. We cover material that many other textbooks ignore, such as how managers should choose between piece rates and tournaments and how firms can increase their profits using clever forms of price discrimination such as bundling and tying. In macroeconomics, we have created a simple yet powerful AD-AS model that combines insights from New Keynesian and Real Business Cycle models.
We have also created the Super Simple Solow model which for the first time makes the Solow model of economic growth accessible to principles of economics students.
