In a world where most undergrads have never known a time when they did not interact with a digital environment daily, the Seventh Edition of Greg Mankiw’s Principles of Economics, which publishes in late November 2013, will include the most extensive interactive digital experience thus far. Students will be able to engage the kinds of digital resources that they are expecting (demanding) through text, video, interactive graphs, graded assignments, and tutorials.
My favorite new enhancement is the series of Mankiw Roadmap videos. For many of the chapters, Greg himself introduces the student to the material and gives context. Here is the one for Chapter 1, in which he discusses how he became interested in economics. Enjoy!
