Written in an informal colloquial style, this student-friendly Principles of Microeconomics textbook does not sacrifice intellectual depth in its quest for accessibility.

Distinguishing features found within Colander’s text are:

  • Cutting Edge and Modern

  • Colloquial Style Narrative

  • Focus on Policy

  • Emphasis on the Importance of Institutions and History
