Microeconomics, Global Edition839
For courses in the principles of microeconomics. An evidence-based approach to economics Throughout Microeconomics, 3rd Edition, authors Daron Acemoglu, David Laibson, and John List use real economic questions and data to help you learn about the world around you. Taking a fresh approach, they use the themes of optimisation, equilibrium, and empiricism to not only illustrate the power of simple economic ideas, but also to explain and predict what's happening in today's society. Each chapter begins with an empirical question that is relevant to the life of the reader, and is later answered using data in the Evidence-Based Economics feature. As a result of the text's practical emphasis, you learn to apply economic principles to guide the decisions you make in your own daily life.
