A new generation of introductory Economics courses is emerging. These courses are now teaching economic principles using a heterodox view point – encouraging learners to see how economics is interdisciplinary and help them reflect more on the real-world issues.
Dawson’s Economics and Economic Change is the first introductory textbook to match this new way of thinking. The authors really encourage critical debate and social and ethical reflection, which are key to this approach.
The book takes a problem-based learning approach, focusing on contemporary economic issues, which is ideal for students starting out - helping them to connect economics to their way of thinking.

What are the implications of economic change for people’s lives? What makes economies grow, and is such growth sustainable? Do poor nations gain from globalization?
Economics and Economic Changeexplores these and related questions in a highly accessible and innovative fashion. The book introduces theoretical perspectives in economics by focusing on contemporary economic issues, blending critical debate and ethical reflection. It also offers an excellent foundation to the contemporary research agenda. The book was originally designed as part of the Open University course of the same name, benefiting from The Open University’s long experience of open support distance education. It is therefore extremely student-centred, ideal for self-study.
Economics and Economic Changeis suitable for those following a course on introductory economics, as a part of a degree in business studies, social sciences, or related areas.
