CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Departing from the encyclopedic nature of most Principles texts, which
encourages students to simply memorize concepts and see economics as a
collection of unrelated terms, formulas, graphs, and theories, this text
provides students with a picture of economics as a unified discipline; a set of
interrelated tools and ideas that can be used to look at the world in a
different way. This book's concise, less is more approach has been carefully
crafted in terms of both content and supporting pedagogy to keep students
focused on learning and applying the central ideas used in economic analysis.
It uniquely employs a simple methodology throughout to emulate how economists
look at problems, and teaches students how to use this same analytical process
in developing their own economic analysis skills. Hall/Lieberman's careful
focus on core theoretical ideas as well as systematically applying the
theoretical tools to interesting real-world questions conveys the message that
economics is an integrated, powerful body of knowledge that can be used to
address important issues.
