This is the ninth edition of “Economics: Principles, Applications, and Tools”. There are three primary goals of preparing this edition.
- This edition has incorporated the sweeping changes in the United States and world economies that have been witnessed in the last several years and the difficulties that the world economy has continued to experience in recovering from the severe economic downturn.
- This edition is updated to reflect the latest exciting developments in economic thinking and make these accessible to new students of economics.
- This edition has stayed true to the philosophy of the textbook—using basic concepts of economics to explain a wide variety of timely and interesting economic applications.
