Microeconomicsby David C Colander
Synopses & Reviews
An examination of microeconomic models in practical use
Microeconomics explores the strengths and weaknesses of standard models of microeconomics and how they are actually used in policy. Chapters discuss the basics of microeconomics; foundations of supply and demand; market structure and policy; monopolistic competition; distribution of income; and the ways economic reasoning is applied to real-world policy. Sidebars reinforce the economic tools presented, while more then four hours of website-accessible video provide interactive exercises and animated tutorials.
Written in an informal colloquial style, this student-friendly principles of microeconomics textbook does not sacrifice intellectual depth in its quest for accessibility. The author's primary concern is to instill "economic sensibility" in the student. Colander emphasizes the intellectual and historical context to which the economic models are applied.
