Macroeconomics makes economic concepts relevant by demonstrating how today's real businesses apply them to make decisions every day. Regardless of your intended future career path -- opening an art studio, trading on Wall Street or bartending at the local pub -- you will benefit from understanding the economic forces that drive the results of your work. The text covers topics such as opportunity cost, trade-offs, scarcity, and demand and supply. These concepts are then made relevant by demonstrating how real businesses apply them to make decisions every day. With ever-changing US and world economies, the 8th Edition has been updated with the latest developments, using new real-world business and policy examples.
