An engaging, practice-oriented approach to understanding core economic principles
Foundations of Economics introduces students to economic principles they can use to navigate the financial decisions of their futures. Each chapter concentrates on a manageable number of ideas, usually 3 to 4, with each reinforced several times throughout the text. This patient approach helps guide students through unfamiliar terrain and focus them on the most important concepts and key skills -- like reading and interpreting graphs.
The 9th Edition continues to fine tune the content with more concise points, while bringing it to life with interactive and digital features that create excitement and engagement. It also motivates with compelling issues and questions, and encourages learning with activities and practice questions, to help students grasp and apply economic principles to the real world. After using these materials, students will have the foundational knowledge of how the economy works and can apply it to their lives going forward.
