An Introduction to the Functioning of the Economy and the Power and Breadth of Economics

Reviewers tell us that Case/Fair/Oster is one of the all-time bestselling Principles of Economics texts because they trust it to be clear, thorough, and complete.

With the latest research and added exercises, readers begin to learn the art and science of economic thinking and start to look at some policy and even personal decisions in a different way.
