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.
