For courses in the Principles of Economics
Introduces Students to the Basic Concepts of Economics with Timely, Engaging Stories and Applications
Students enter their first economics course hoping to gain a better understanding of the world around them, but often leave with their questions unanswered. Economics: Principles, Applications, and Tools is built upon the author’s philosophy of using basic concepts of economics to explain a wide variety of timely, engaging, real-world economic applications.
The Ninth Edition incorporates updated figures and data, while also emphasizing current topics of interest—including the severe economic downturn of recent years and the latest developments in economic thinking. It also includes newly refined Learning Objectives that introduce the concepts explored in each chapter, along with new applications and chapter-opening stories related to the most up-to-date developments in both macroeconomics and microeconomics.
