Summary

Where microeconomics gets down to work

Like no other text for the intermediate microeconomics course, Goolsbee, Levitt, and Syverson’s Microeconomics bridges the gap between the theory and practice, providing an empirical dimension that makes the course immediately relevant and useful to students. With carefully crafted features and examples that offer unusual perspectives on the seemingly ordinary, Goolsbee, Levitt, and Syverson’s breakthrough text helps instructors move students from understanding basic economic principles to applying the powerful tools of economic analysis.
