Like the author's best-selling, highly regarded International Economics text, this book integrates a clear and concise presentation of economic theory with an abundance of real-world cases and applications. Rather than discussing economic theory in the abstract, and then including real-world applications in separate sections, the text weaves applications into all theoretical discussions. There is no other Survey text that emphasizes real-world applications to this degree.
