Introduces students to the basic concepts of economics with engaging stories and timely applications

Students enter their first economics course hoping to gain a better understanding of the world around them, but often leave with their questions unanswered. Survey of Economics: Principles, Applications, and Tools is built upon the authors’ philosophy of using basic concepts of economics to explain a wide variety of relevant, current, and engaging economic applications. The 8th Edition incorporates the latest economic developments and timely applications throughout, such as the impact of Bitcoin on monetary policy and the opportunity cost of hosting an AirBnB. By making every chapter accessible and applied, students develop an understanding of core principles that they will use as citizens and consumers, now and in their careers.
