Personnel Economics in Practice 3rd Edition
Personnel Economics in Practice, 3rd Edition by Edward Lazear and Michael Gibbs gives readers a rigorous framework for understanding organizational design and the management of employees. Economics has proven to be a powerful approach in the changing study of organizations and human resources by adding rigor and structure and clarifying many important issues. Not only will readers learn and apply ideas from microeconomics, they will also learn principles that will be valuable in their future careers.

This dedicated South African edition of Prof. N. Gregory Mankiw and Prof. Mark P. Taylor’s Economics combines up-to-date South African content and examples with a robust conceptual understanding of the subject using contemporary approaches to theory. The edition retains the features which have made the title so popular with students and instructors, including: the classic ten principles approach to economics – introduced in Chapter One and then referred to throughout the book designed to help build a framework for understanding. A rigorous emphasis throughout on ‘thinking like an economist’ – adopting the tools, methods and concepts economists use in addressing problems and issues. The main body of the text has been expertly tailored to South African students, encouraging them to apply the information and data supplied to their own environment and experiences.
Microeconomics: case studies and applications 2nd edition is an essential text that supports Cengage Learnings suite of Economics titles.

The case studies are written specifically for students at a level they can easily relate to, and are presented in such a way that the theoretical concept being taught can be applied. They are intended as a students stepping stone to using authentic news articles.
