Economics is that rare book that combines plain language and a humorous writing style with intellectual depth and historical perspective. Standard economic models are presented not as inflexible rules but as tools for making real world judgments and analyses. Updates to this edition include added coverage of international trade and development, with web icons appearing in the margin to tie the book's ideas to the web through links on the book's website.
