Couverture de l’ouvrage Economics, Global Edition

For two-semester courses in Principles of Economics.


The Relevance of Economics Through Real-world Business Examples

One of the challenges of teaching Principles of Economics is fostering interest in concepts that may not seem applicable to students’ lives. Economics makes economics relevant by demonstrating how real businesses use economics to make decisions every day. And with an ever-changing U.S. and world economy, the Sixth Edition, Global Edition, has been updated with the latest developments using new real-world business and policy examples. Regardless of their future career path—opening an art studio, trading on Wall Street, or bartending at the local pub—students will benefit from understanding the economic forces behind their work.


MyLab™ Economics  not included. Students, if MyLab Economics is a recommended/mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correct ISBN and course ID. MyLab Economics should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.
