Summary

Like a lens that brings the indistinct into focus, Parkin's Economics introduces students to the art of seeing the invisible, teaching them interpret the story told by the economic indicators, uncover meaning hidden in the headlines, and gain a clear vision through economic analysis.

An inspired teacher and crystal-clear writer, Michael Parkin has long been dedicated to helping students discover and apply the timeless principles of economics.

Parkin invites students to:
