Summary

McConnell and Brue�s Microeconomics, Brief Edition comes from the same author team as the market-leading Principles of Microeconomics textbook. It continues to be innovative while teaching students in a clear, unbiased way. Like the 18th edition, Microeconomics, Brief Edition has 3 main goals: help the beginning student master the principles essential for understanding the economizing problem, specific economic issues, and the policy alternatives; help the student understand and apply the economic perspective and reason accurately and objectively about economic matters; and promote a lasting student interest in economics and the economy. Although the Brie Editionf is a derivative of Microeconomics 18e, is not a cut-and-paste book that simply eliminates several chapters of Economics 18e and reorders and renumbers the retained content. Instead, Microeconomics, Brief Edition is a very concise, highly integrated economics textbook that is distinct in purpose, style, and coverage from Microeconomics 18e.
