Abstract

Think like an Economist! Economics touches almost every aspect of life, from climate change, terrorism and the development of new drugs, to taxes, house prices, wages, what to eat for dinner and how much time to spend studying. Thinking like an economist will enable you to understand human behaviour, make more informed decisions, and evaluate economic policies. The leading economists in the news today started out like you, as students taking a course in the principles of economics. Like them, you can learn to think like an economist, and this book will show you how. Economics, Seventh Edition, introduces the central ideas of economics and explains them using a straightforward, precise and clear writing style. The authors put the principles to work by repeatedly using them to illuminate a wide range of current real-world problems and issues.Features of this book include: *Economic analysis of news articles and case studies to show how economic principles can be used in practice to understand the forces that shape our world *Boxes to connect economic principles with real world data and events *Review questions, end-of-chapter Problems, Critical Thinking exercises and Web Activities to test your understanding *Figures to illustrate and reinforce the key ideas *Mathematical notes to strengthen your grasp of key principles *Interviews with leading economists to show what inspired them to study and pursue careers in economics This is the ideal textbook for university students learning the principles of economics.
