Principles of economics
- About Author
A textbook for a first-year education on the principles of economics. Economists have a unique way of viewing the world, much of which can be taught in one or two semesters. My goal in this book is to transmit this way of thinking to the widest possible audience and to convince readers that it illuminates much of the world around them. I have tried to put myself in the position of someone seeing economics for the first time. My goal is to emphasize the material that students should and do find interesting about the study of the economy.... The purpose of this book is to help readers learn the fundamental lessons of economics and to show them how those lessons can be applied to the world in which they live.
