In terms of level, pace, complexity of examples and user-friendly style the text is excellent – it genuinely recognises and meets the needs of students with minimal maths background.” Colin Glass, Emeritus Professor, University of Ulster “One of the major strengths of this book is the range of exercises in both drill and applications. Also the ‘worked examples’ are excellent; they provide examples of the use of mathematics to realistic problems and are easy to follow.” Donal Hurley, formerly of University College Cork “The most comprehensive reader in this topic yet, this book is an essential aid to the avid economist who loathes mathematics!” Amazon.co.uk

For courses in Principles of Microeconomics. An evidence-based approach to economics Throughout Microeconomics, 2nd Edition, authors Daron Acemoglu, David Laibson, and John List use real economic questions and data to help students learn about the world around them. Taking a fresh approach, they use the themes of optimization, equilibrium, and empiricism to not only illustrate the power of simple economic ideas, but also to explain and predict what’s happening in today’s society. Each chapter begins with an empirical question that is relevant to the life of a student, and is later answered using data in the Evidence-Based Economics feature. As a result of the text’s practical emphasis, students will learn to apply economic principles to guide the decisions they make in their own lives. MyLabTM Economics not included.

Professor Schotter believes the future of teaching microeconomics will be heavily connected with the use of experimental tools. And with the exciting new MICROECONOMICS: A MODERN APPROACH, your students will be well prepared. Applying intermediate economics to everyday life, this innovative first edition is built on an experimental economics framework that emphasizes game theory, strategic analysis, and organization of the firm without skimping on traditional topics like consumer choice, production and markets. Each chapter and section builds upon a unifying theme of how economic institutions develop to solve problems that arise in a society. Concepts are presented within the context of a society that starts out in a primitive state of nature and gradually develops the characteristics and institutions of a modern economy. The text also nurtures critical thinking skills by presenting theories, as well as their deficiencies. Illustrating various points of view, MICROECONOMICS: A MODERN APPROACH encourages students to not just study theory, but apply their knowledge learned to real-world issues.

Principles of Economics, 7th Edition, provides a deeper understanding of economics by eliminating overwhelming detail and focusing on seven core principles that are reinforced and illustrated throughout the text.

Throughout this process, the authors encourage students to become “economic naturalists:” people who employ basic economic principles to understand and explain what they observe in the world around them.
With new videos and interactive graphs alongside SmartBook’s adaptive reading experience, the 7th edition enables instructors to spend class time engaging, facilitating, and answering questions instead of lecturing on the basics.
