Dr. William A. McEachern began teaching large sections of economic principles shortly after joining the University of Connecticut. Several years later he began offering teaching workshops around the country. The University of Connecticut Alumni Association conferred on him its Faculty Excellence in Teaching Award in 2000.

His principles of economics textbooks have been translated into Spanish, Chinese, and Bahasa Indonesia, and have been adapted for Australia and for India. He is the founding editor of THE TEACHING ECONOMIST, a newsletter that for a quarter of a century has focused on teaching economics at the college level. Dr. McEachern has advised federal, state, and local governments on policy matters and has been quoted in media such as the New York Times, Times of London, Wall Street Journal USA Today and Reader's Digest. He, earned an undergraduate degree with honors from College of the Holy Cross, served three years as a U.S. Army officer, and earned an M.A. and Ph.D. in economics from the University of Virginia.

Review:

My appreciation of his book is considerable. The quality of the writing is generally superb, and the balance with which the author presents controversial material is admirable.

I like the level and the way in which all the material is presented. The graphs are very clear and the supporting data is displayed in a very readable style. Overall-a great text.

I found the author's writing style engaging and comfortable. I think the examples used will connect with principles students. The case studies in each chapter I read were interesting, enlightening, and concise.
