Overview

What sorts of people are unemployed and why? How safe are banks? Should we aim to have no pollution? Why do wages vary so much? Are your students interested in debating the answers to these sorts of questions? This book is.

A refreshingly concise, focused, and straightforward text, Economics covers only essential introductory topics, thereby ensuring that students will not be overwhelmed by unnecessary content. Author David King uses exceptionally clear and engaging explanations—which are also relevant to students' experiences—to make both simple and more complex topics easily understandable. Innovative pedagogy—including "recap" features and convenient summary sections—allows students to peruse the material as desired without sacrificing any understanding of the topics covered.

Economics is accompanied by a Companion Website containing student resources: multiple-choice questions, related links, a flashcard glossary, and solutions to questions in the text. It also provides a test bank, figures from the text, and PowerPoint-based lecture slides for instructors.
