The Relevance of Economics Through Real-world Business Examples

Economics makes economics relevant by demonstrating how real businesses use economics to make decisions every day. And with an ever changing U.S. and world economy, the Fifth Edition has been updated with the latest developments using new real-world business and policy examples. Regardless of their future career path—opening an art studio, trading on Wall Street, or bartending at the local pub--readers will benefit from understanding the economic forces behind their work.
