Microeconomics: Markets, Methods and Models focuses upon the material that students need ...

Microeconomics: Markets, Methods and Models focuses upon the material that students need to cover in a first introductory course. It is slightly more compact than the majority of principles books in the Canadian marketplace. Decades of teaching experience and textbook writing has led the authors to avoid the encyclopedic approach that characterizes the recent trends in textbooks. Consistent with this approach, there are no appendices or ‘afterthought’ chapters. If important material is challenging then it is still included in the main body of the text; it is not relegated elsewhere for a limited audience; the text makes choices on what issues and topics are important in an introductory course. This philosophy has resulted in a Micro book of just 15 chapters, of which Chapters 1 through 3 plus Chapter 15 are common to both Micro and Macro. Examples are domestic and international in their subject matter and are of the modern era – consumers buy iPods, snowboards and jazz, not so much coffee and hamburgers. Globalization is a recurring theme. The title is intended to be informative. Students are introduced to the concepts of models early, and the working of such models is illustrated in every chapter. Calculus is avoided; but students learn to master and solve linear models. Hence straight line equations.
