 The discipline of Economics in Nigeria at the tertiary level has, for long, been yearning for textbooks developed from the perspective of developing economics to replace textbooks written by foreign authors from the perspective of developed western economics.  As part of the effort towards realizing this objective, Evans Brothers (Nigeria Publishers) Limited, in conjunction with the authors, Prof. S.O. Olofin and Dr. A.A. Salisu, renowned authorities in macroeconomics, presents this well-researched and intelligently written textbook titled ‘An Introduction to Macroeconomics’.

This is a well written textbook for university undergraduate courses, professional degree programmes such as the MBA, and for OND/HND Economics courses in Polytechnics and Colleges of Education, and related institutions where Economics is taught. 

This second edition of the textbook is replete with several modern learning innovations to facilitate fast and effective understanding of the readers. Foremost among these innovation are:

(i)        introduction of ‘Learning Outcomes’ at the beginning of each chapter to motivate and guide the readers to area of emphasis necessary for mastery of the contents of each chapter.

(ii)       at the end of each chapter, a ‘Summary’ is given to enable the reader capture the essence and primary focus of the chapter.

(iii)     each chapter concludes with a set of questions for the readers, to enable them assess the extent of their comprehension of the salient points in the chapter.

Prof. Olofin, the co-author, was given the opportunity at the 55th Annual National Conference of the Nigerian Economic Society held in Abuja in November 2014 to introduce this book to members.  We are glad to announce that this book is now readily available in all reputable bookshops and one can obtain as many copies as one desires at an affordable price of N2000 per copy.
