This book integrates real-world "widget-free" examples throughout and uses extended applications to show students that economic theory has practical, problem-solving uses, and that it is not just an empty academic exercise.

Students using Perloff benefit from the author's step-by-step approach to problem solving that demonstrates how microeconomic theory is used to solve economic problems and analyze policy issues.
