ECONOMICS: PRIVATE AND PUBLIC CHOICE includes many more engaging elements—such as scenes from popular movies and applications of economic theory to real-world issues—to help you see how these theories apply to the world around you. Each chapter has been updated to reflect today’s market, including analysis and explanation of measures of current economic activity. You’ll also find highlights of the lives of notable economists and how they contributed to the thinking that shapes our markets today. Common economic myths are dispelled, and the “invisible hand” metaphor is applied to economic theory, demonstrating how it’s working even today to stimulate the economy.
