Description - Economics Is Everywhere by Daniel Hamermesh

Economics Is Everywhere, Fifth Edition, presents vignettes inspired by everyday events from news articles, films, family and popular culture.

Students will be able to identify with economics rather than be afraid of it! Topics that are discussed include opportunity costs, trade-offs, supply and demand, elasticity, competitive markets and monopoly.
