Designed for the one-term introductory economics curriculum for non-majors, Boyes’s Fundamentals Of Economics, 6th Edition, (PDF) involves students with business decisions of actual, headline-making companies and converses the economic policies of today’s world leaders. The Sixth Edition has been thoroughly revised to reflect the present economic condition in the United States and the world and reflects fresh events in the Obama administration, especially related to healthcare.

The helpful pedagogical framework that leads students through each chapter includes Fundamental Questions, which open and organize the chapter by emphasizing three to six main issues, and which then repeat both at point of relevance in the margins and in the end-of-chapter Summary sections; Now You Try It checkpoint questions that test students on important concepts, with answers given at the back of the book; Recaps at the end of every major section to divide the material into convenient segments; and end-of-chapter exercises that serve as self-checks for learners and as homework assignment options for instructors. A built-in study guide follows every chapter, and offers a more intensive review opportunity for college students, with answers given in an appendix. Most chapters include four pages of study material consisting of main term match-ups, multiple-choice quizzes, and practice questions and problems. The last section of application problems gives students an opportunity to analyze and synthesize what they have learned.
