Summary

NOTE: This edition features the same content as the traditional text in a convenient, three-hole-punched, loose-leaf version. Student Value Editions also offer a great value; this format costs significantly less than a new textbook. Before purchasing, check with your instructor or review your course syllabus to ensure that you select the correct ISBN. For Student Value editions that include MyLab™ or Mastering™, several versions may exist for each title -- including customized versions for individual schools -- and registrations are not transferable. In addition, you may need a Course ID, provided by your instructor, to register for and use MyLab or Mastering platforms.


For two-semester principles of economics courses.


An intuitive and grounded approach to economics 

Get students to think like economists using the latest policy and data while incorporating global issues.  Microeconomics, 13th Edition builds on the foundation of the previous edition and retains a thorough and careful presentation of the principles of economics. The text emphasizes real-world applications, the development of critical-thinking skills, diagrams renowned for their pedagogy and clarity, and path-breaking technology. As a hallmark, features in the chapter openings and endings encourage students to think critically about a news article relating to the issue, demonstrating how thinking like an economist can bring a clearer perspective and deeper understanding of today’s events.


Also available with MyLab Economics

By combining trusted author content with digital tools and a flexible platform, MyLab personalizes the learning experience and improves results for each student.
