This unique chapter brings together the context and direction that today's instructors and students have requested for a thorough economic analysis of the recent crisis.
  • VIDEO OFFICE HOURS FROM AUTHOR WALK STUDENTS THROUGH KEY CONCEPTS AND GRAPHS FOR EACH CHAPTER.

  • ECONOMICS 24/7 FEATURE ILLUSTRATES THE PRACTICAL RELEVANCE OF KEY CONCEPTS. This helpful feature explores numerous timely issues that can be explained through economic analysis. For example, students examine why people specialize and trade, whether or not a tax on soda will help reduce obesity, why states may ban real estate commission rebates and whether a tax rebate or tax bonus is better. Economics 24/7 teaches readers to look for economic forces at work--and understand the principles behind those forces.
