Essentials of Economics - 6th edition

Essentials of Economics (ISBN10: 0073402796; ISBN13: 9780073402796)
ISBN13: 978-0073402796
ISBN10: 0073402796

Summary: Essentials of Economics is the market leader for the one-semester survey course. In just about 400 pages, it provides a solid introduction to the core concepts of economics with an emphasis on real-world examples and current events. Essentials has earned its popular success because, unlike other books on the market, it is free of the abstract and complex theory that requires more time than this course allows. Instead, the text is clean and concise, with many examples
of significance to students today, including Headlines and Policy Perspectives that use current events to help illustrate the topics discussed. This real-world policy emphasis is a distinctive feature of Schiller's text and is integral to its dominance of the survey text market.

New Features
  • Full Updates Throughout the Text. Every chapter of the Sixth Edition of Schiller's Essentials of Economics includes a myriad of updates including new and updated Policy Perspective discussions, recent headlines, and the latest data on topics such as college graduate salaries and growth and productivity.
  • New Discussions. The Sixth edition includes discussions on key topics of current economic interest, such as the redistributive role of the tax/transfer system in Chapter 9, and the Greenspan-Bernanke transition and alternative strategies for monetary policy in Chapter 14, among others.
  • Current Headlines. New articles on the impact of Hurricane Katrina on gasoline prices, transportation costs, and SUV sales; monopoly pricing at hub airports; the competitive price squeeze on laptop computers; the debate over arctic drilling; the earnings of college coaches; unrelenting tuition inflation; and the sugar lobby's opposition to CAFTA have all been added to the Sixth edition. These new headlines will help to underscore the importance and relevance of economics in everyone's lives and will motivate non-majors into conscientious study of the material.
