Economics for Life: 101 Lessons You Can Use Every Day!
Economics for Life is a book about real-world applications for economics. In addition to applications, the text contains critiques of common economic fallacies, paradoxical economic results, and solutions to economic mysteries that are sure to interest students. Ideal when paired with Boyes/Melvin or Taylor principles texts, Economics for Life helps students use economic concepts to better understand the world around them. Instructors will find that the book serves as a valuable resource for delivering a more applications-based Principles (or Economics 101) course. The result is a more relevant, interesting, and successful learning experience for everyone!
