I haven't yet read this whole book, but I much prefer this textbook to Mankiw pr Perloff because Krugman owns up to the shortcomings of economics as a discipline up front and then consistently thereafter. He mentions non-marketable goods and where the market fails in the first chapter. He mentions the difference between needs and wants, and how that creates problems. Mankiw and Perloff minimize or ignore such discussions and lay out economics as if it is an objective philosophy for all life.

This was the assigned reading for my first year at uni studying micro- and macroeconomics and now that I've finished my first year I can say that the book was worth the hefty amount of money I had to pay for it. It is well-written and well-structured with plenty of diagrams and pictures illustrating the concepts they try to explain. Every chapter starts with a story that shows how the topic of the chapter can be applied to the real world. The authors will often refer to these stories throughout ...more

The micro and macro economic concepts were well-explained. Additionally, the textbook was full of relevant examples from the market which helped me gain a better insight of the topic.

Insightful look at global competitiveness and the forces of economic change. Reading this a few years after the original publishing, several of the trends have continued, and we have experienced a global economic crash. Mr. Friedman does not hesitate to express his opinions which makes for good debatable content. This is one of those books that you have to be able to reference when talking about today's economic climate, and starting a business in this new, flat world.

The clear successor to Paul Samuelson's classic text as the best Econ 101 intro volume out there. Worth getting the one-volume "International" edition.
