For two-semester courses in the principles of economics.
The relevance of economics shown through real-world business examples
One of the challenges of teaching principles of economics is fostering interest in concepts that may not seem applicable to students’ lives. Essentials of Economics makes this topic relevant by demonstrating how real businesses use economics to make decisions every day. With an ever-changing US and world economy, the 6th Edition has been updated with the latest developments using new real-world business and policy examples. Regardless of their future career path -- opening an art studio, trading on Wall Street, or bartending at the local pub, students will benefit from understanding the economic forces behind their work.
