Foundations of Economics PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Foundations of Economics free pdf Introductory economics is often thought of as dull and unappetising. Beginners need inspiration and help. Foundations of Economics breathes new life into an often-times dry discipline by linking key economic concepts with wider debates and issues. By bringing to light delightful mind-teasers, philosophical questions and intriguing politics in mainstream economics, it promises to enliven an otherwise dry course whilst inspiring students to do well. The book covers all the main economic concepts and addresses in detail three main areas: consumption and choice production and markets government and the State. Each is discussed in terms of what the conventional textbook says, how these ideas developed in historical and philosophical terms and whether or not they make sense. Assumptions about economics as a discipline are challenged, and several pertinent students' anxieties ('Should I be studying economics?') are discussed.
