How does your level of education affect your lifetime earnings profile? Will economic development lead to increased environmental degradation? How does the participation of women in the labor force differ across countries? How do college scholarship rules affect savings? Each of these questions is the subject of an application in this book.

User Review - Flag as inappropriate

This book provides mostly definitions and virtually NO examples on how to execute economic and mathematical problems. Furthermore it assumes you remember everything from past courses in trigonometry, precalculus, and calculus; offering no review chapter at the begging of the book. It touches mathematical methods for economics on a very superficial level. I do not recommend this book, there are much better, more resourceful books out there with much clearer explanations and examples.
