If you want to teach with a Micro-first principles text that brings out economic applications through real-world examples and news analysis articles then be sure to review Case and Fair's Principles of Economics 7/e.
If you would like to complete perfect competition before moving on to imperfect competition, take a look at Case and Fair's coverage in Chapters 5-10 and then 12-16.
When covering Comparative Advantage, if you prefer a brief introduction early in the course with in-depth analysis later, peruse Chapter 2 and then Section V of Case and Fair with it extensive Global coverage, as well.
If you have looked at or used Case/Fair in the past, but wished it had more modern coverage of Economic Principles, be sure to check out the expanded game theory coverage in Chapter 13, a new Chapter (16) on Public Finance, and early coverage of Consumer and Producer Surplus in Chapter 4.
If you like to deliver instruction on technical topics such as cost curves, isoquants, and/or indifference curves, be sure to examine Case and Fair's coverage of these topics in Chapters 7, 6, and the Appendix to Chapter 5, respectively.
If you prefer to introduce short run issues before long run issues, and fully develop the Keynesian Cross with integrated coverage between chapters before covering the AS/AD Model, examine Case and Fair's chapters 20-25.Do you want to engage your students with coverage of the booms and busts of the Stock Market? If so, review Case and Fair's all new Chapter on the Stock Market and the Economy (28).
