Summary

Bradley Schiller's The Microeconomy Today through six editions has a proven track record as a quality text that provides students with a lively and comprehensible introduction to economics. Text and graphs are carefully integrated to help students understand and retain the often complex theories and concepts. Schiller's engaging writing style,careful pedagogy,excellent use of current real-world examples,and outstanding policy coverage are all proven successful features of The Microeconomy Today. One objective of the Microeconomy Today is to introduce students to the controversies and issues that are associated with both theory and policy. Competing views are often graphically explained side-by-side to clearly illustrate the obvious theoretical differences. The result is that Schiller has no overt point of view due to its balanced presentation.
