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. This 12th edition includes new technology features such as a robust set of online multimedia learning tools, including video clips and free quizzes designed to support your classroom work; a completely updated Aplia interactive learning system with practice problems, interactive tutorials, online experiences, and more.
