This text is for the one-term, introductory economics course designed for non-majors. Rather than using an encyclopedic approach to economics, this text focuses on the most basic tool in economics - supply and demand analysis - and applies it clearly to real-world economic issues. Students learn how to apply, not just memorize, basic economic principles effectively.
