When asked to describe this text, most Lipsey readers use the same word: precise. The authors do not gloss over subjects when presenting economic ideas; rather, they offer a patient explanation of the concept and back it up with the latest research and data. Taken separately, neither theory nor data alone can give readers a true understanding of the idea, but when combined these elements give students a complete view of economics in the real world.
