Economics Today – Roger LeRoy Miller – 16th Edition

Description

Miller’s Economics Today remains committed to providing readers with discussion and coverage of the most current issues and events. Given the immense changes in our economy, this sixteenth edition of Economics Today addresses what has occurred and discusses the importance of today’s major economic issues.

Students learn best when they see concepts applied to examples from their everyday lives. With an abundance of relentlessly current examples, Economics Today appeals to today’s diverse student population by presenting ideas clearly, at an accessible level, and in the context of newsworthy applications.

Each chapter begins and ends with an Issues and Applications feature, which introduces a timely issue in the chapter opener and analyzes the issue using the economic tools learned in that chapter at the end.
