The economics book that helps you make the grade!
In the first edition of Economics we integrated the global perspective with the traditional economic principles to give students a framework to understand the globally developing economic world. Events since then have made this approach even more imperative. The Soviet Union has disintegrated, newly independent nations have emerged, and markets have been established where none had existed before. Students and instructors embraced the idea that the economics of countries are interrelated and that this should be made clear in the study of economics. Economics gives students the tools they need to make connections between the economic principles they learn and the non-global world they live in.
Students often wonder why they need to study economics. The sixth edition begins with a discussion of "Why Study Economics?" and provides information on what economists do and what majoring in economics means.
