About

Overview

Designed specifically for the one-semester introductory economics course for nonmajors, Tucker's SURVEY OF ECONOMICS, 9E delivers the most comprehensive and student-focused introduction to economics available. This reader-friendly, intriguing book is renowned for its engaging presentation, emphasis on critical thinking, active learning, unrivaled visual learning support, and numerous in-chapter applications and review. The book focuses on the most basic tools and topics in economics in the context of real-world issues and gives students the opportunity to see how economic issues are resolved nationally and globally. The latest updates introduce current economic careers and the changing economic character of the United States. Students examine today's pressing topics, including the federal deficit and national debt, income levels and fair pay for females, social networking sites, and gasoline prices. Comprehensive learning and teaching resources, including the leading online homework solution Aplia™, MindTap™ Personal Learning Experience, and Write Experience, help students master the basics of economics with success.

Features and Benefits

  • "GLOBAL ECONOMICS" BOXES EMPHASIZE A GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE. Students see how economic issues occur and resolve at national and international levels as "Global Economics" boxes address topics such as "How Does Public Capital Affect a Nation's Curve?" and "How Should Carbon Emissions be Reduced: Cap-and-Trade or Carbon Taxes?"
  • "ECONOMICS IN PRACTICE" BOXES AND MORE HIGHLIGHT REAL-WORLD RELEVANCE. Students see economic theory at work as they examine topics such as "Social-Networking Sites: The New Advertising Game," "America's Housing Market Bubble Bursts," and "Why Is That Web Site You're Using Free?" In addition, "Checkpoint" features connect chapter concepts to today's headlines, such as "What Is the Real Price of Gasoline?" and "What Is the MPC for Uncle Sam's Stimulus Package?" Coverage of potential economic careers gives students a taste of exciting opportunities in the field.
  • UNIQUE LEARNING FEATURES MOTIVATE AND DIRECT ACTIVE LEARNING. A national award-winning teacher, this author draws from his vast educational expertise to integrate learning features throughout the book that spark interaction and critical thinking. "Analyze the Issue" questions challenge students to apply their own understanding of economic concepts to today's issues, prompting lively classroom discussions. In addition, boxed diagrams clearly illustrate what is happening in each graph, with a simple flowchart that helps students understand cause/effect relationships.
  • BASIC CONCEPTS ARE CLEAR, CONCISE, AND FOCUSED. By emphasizing the basic tools of supply and demand analysis using a real-world perspective, this text equips students with a thorough understanding of the basics instead of providing a quick glimpse of a multitude of topics.
  • INTEGRATED SELF-ASSESSMENT ENSURES COMPREHENSION. Thought-provoking "You Make the Call" questions challenge students to check their understanding of economic concepts by applying principles to actual situations. Students can check their answers at the end of each chapter for immediate feedback on how well they have learned the material. Multiple-choice Practice Quizzes function as built-in study guides for each chapter, with answers at the end of the book and unique visual explanations on the book's website.
