Parkin’s Microeconomics is a worldwide leader because it provides a serious, analytical approach to the discipline using the latest policy and data. Parkin trains students to think like economists by offering a clear introduction to theory and applying the concepts to today’s events, news, and research.
From our global food shortage to global warming, economic issues permeate our everyday lives. Parkin brings critical issues to the forefront. Each chapter begins with one of today’s key issues, and additional issues appear throughout the chapter to show the real-world applications of the theory being discussed. When the chapter concludes, students “read between the lines” to think critically about a news article relating to the issue, demonstrating how thinking like an economist helps make informed decisions.
A standard macroeconomics text, revised to change the balance of the coverage of national income accounting, giving greater prominence to a discussion of the validity of the GDP as a measure of economic well- being; to simplify and streamline the initial presentation of the aggregate demand-aggregate supply model; and to give enhanced prominence to the role of financial deregulation in the macroeconomy. The coverage of economies in transition provides a framework for understanding events in Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union, and China as these countries change their economic systems and open their markets to international influences.
