Summary: This text employs an "issues approach" to consumer economics. Each chapter has one or two consumer issues that are highlighted through engaging, real world examples. These real world examples are highly applied aspects of everyday consumer situations.


  • Roger Miller and Alan Stafford's "Economic Issues for Consumers" is devoted to helping students learn how more to make wise consumer choices throughout their life.
  • NEW!-The text has been trimmed from 22 chapters to 19 chapters. This will enable students and professors alike to cover more material in one semester.
  • NEW!-Updates throughout the text reflect the most current national and global economic trends.
  • NEW!-"Confronting Consumer Issues" (formerly Consumer Issues) end each chapter with a major application of the topics from the chapter.
  • NEW!-"The Rational Consumer" boxes have been deleted.
  • NEW!-"Global Consumer" boxes have been replaced with Diversity boxes.
  • NEW!-The Questions for Thought and Discussion features have been moved to the margins to add an immediate interactive feature to the body of the chapter.
  • NEW!-Material on the Internet will be streamlined into one end of chapter section called "Resources on the Internet."
  • NEW!-Chapters now conclude with optional InfoTrac College Edition exercises, which encourage students to make use of the wide array of journals available to them through this powerful supplemental tool.
  • Chapters begin with a set of "Preview Questions" related to the central topics of that chapter, which help to orient students to the material that will be covered.
  • Each chapter concludes with a "Consumer Issue" feature, which explores topics related to the chapter material in greater depth. For example, Consumer Issue 19 explores "The Health-Care Dilemma and Consumer" Issue 13 discusses "How to Avoid Fraudulent Car-Repair Practices."
  • Ethical Consumer boxes, covering issues such as "The Ethical Use of Cyberspace" (Chapter 15) and "What to Do When your Insurer Says No" (Chapter 19), in various chapters demonstrate how personal ethics can influence consumers' decisions.
  • The "Cyber Consumer" boxes provide Internet-related exercises to help illustrate for students how the electronic age impacts consumer activity.
  • "Internet Connection" activities encourage students to explore the electronic resources available to consumers.
  • "Consumer Close-Up"" boxes throughout the text describe real-life consumer experiences to give students a glimpse of situations they may encounter. Examples include Sexual Discrimination in Education (Chapter 7) and The Sofa Swindle (Chapter 12).
  • Key Terms are identified in bold type and are defined on the page on which they first appear. Terms are also listed at the ends of the chapters and definitions are provided in a glossary at the end of the text.
  • Summaries at the conclusion of every chapter provide a concise, numbered list of the important points covered in that chapter. less
