Real World Micro, 13th edition, is a lively, thought provoking supplement to introductory and intermediate microeconomics textbooks. Real World Micro critically examines topics such as market power, the economics of the environment, and job discrimination, offering alternative perspectives designed to stimulate discussion. The articles bring complex topics to life by showing the effects of economic trends on communities, workers, and the environment.

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 and workplace issues. The new edition introduces tackles a range of hot-button topics, including tax policy, rent control, immigration, the Kyoto Accords, the Social Security debate, affordable housing, CEO compensation, the privatization of public goods like water, and the consequences of unchecked global and national inequality.

The thoroughly revised and expanded 13th edition also contains new chapter introductions reviewing the concepts examined in each article, as well as 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, 6th edition, and its microeconomics "split."

Real World Micro's engaging articles are drawn from the pages of Dollars & Sense, the award-winning 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, Grassroots Journalism, Striking a Balance, The Wealth Inequality Reader, and Unlevel Playing Fields: Understanding Wage Inequality and Discrimination.
