  • Explicit Policy Orientation.
    Schiller tightens the link between theory and policy by repeatedly referring to the policy sequence of goal-setting, strategy development, and tactical choices - all rooted in economic theory, increasing understanding and more clearly defining policy methods for the principles student. "The Economy Today" uses economic policy to show the reality and relevance of economics; every chapter starts and ends with policy issues and contains a wealth of real-world applications.

  • Clear, Approachable Theory.
    In addition to an abundance of real-world applications, clear, approachable theory helps professors teach economics, not just increase awareness of policy issues. To that end, "The Economy Today" provides a logically organized and uncluttered theoretical structure for macro, micro, and international theory in a lively, student-friendly manner.

  • Core Questions.
    "The Economy Today" utilizes the core questions of economics: what, how, and for whom. What goods and services does the United States produce? How is that output produced? For whom is the output produced? The author challenges students to consider who best answers these questions -the market or the government-allowing students to think analytically and critically about our economy today.
