Summary

In a world full of economics blogs, Cowen and Tabarrok’s Marginal Revolution (marginalrevolution.com) ranks is one of the Web’s most popular and most respected. The same qualities that make the blog so distinctive are also behind the success Modern Principles of Economics—engaging authors, unbiased presentations of essential ideas, and a knack for revealing the “invisible hand” of economics at work.  The thoroughly updated new edition of Modern Principles again draws on a wealth of captivating applications to show readers how economics shed light on business, politics, world affairs, and everyday life.

"Here we have an interesting book, called MODERN PRINCIPLES OF ECONOMICS. This book is unique and in my view interesting because this book combines a blog and modern principles of economics. The blog aspect makes this more creative reading material. The economics are a bit complicated for me to understand. This is a great book for college. I like this book gives readers a lot of up to date information for economics in the real world. This book provides a lot of useful information on how readers can use modern economics in their daily life and in many different situations."
