Summary

Parkin's Microeconomicsis a worldwide leader because it provides a serious, analytical approach to the discipline using the latest policy and data. Parkin trains students to think like economists by offering a clear introduction to theory and applying the concepts to today's events, news, and research. From our global food shortage to global warming, economic issues permeate our everyday lives. Parkin brings critical issues to the forefront. Each chapter begins with one of today's key issues, and additional issues appear throughout the chapter to show the real-world applications of the theory being discussed. When the chapter concludes, students "read between the lines" to think critically about a news article relating to the issue, demonstrating how thinking like an economist helps make informed decisions.
