Real World Micro, 11th edition, is a provocative supplement to introductory and intermediate economics textbooks. Real World Micro critically examines topics such as market power, economics of the environment, and job discrimination, offering alternative perspectives designed to stimulate discussion.
In addition to covering the basics -- supply and demand, production and consumption decisions, market structure and monopoly -- Real World Micro explores economic principles by discussing government policy. The new edition introduces a variety of current topics, including privatized education, the living wage movement, and pharmaceutical pricing.
The eleventh edition also contains new chapter introductions reviewing the concepts examined in each article, and discussion questions relating them to a standard textbook. And while Real World Micro is an excellent supplement to any mainstream text, its articles have been keyed to David Colander’s popular textbook, Economics, 5th edition, and its microeconomics "split."
Real World Micro's readable articles are drawn from the pages of Dollars & Sense, the bimonthly magazine of popular economics. Dollars & Sense also publishes Real World Macro, Current Economic Issues, Real World Globalization, Real World Banking, The Environment in Crisis, Introduction to Political Economy, and Unlevel Playing Fields: Understanding Wage Inequality and Discrimination.
