Economics: A Tool for Critically Understanding Society offers a clear, simple introduction to economic analysis in a style that is ideal for a one-semester introductory course. The authors take a historical perspective, presenting economic theories and their connections to a wide variety of schools of thought. The goal is to help students use economic concepts to analyze today’s issues, to think about everyday decisions, and to examine their preconceived ideas and beliefs.
