Principles of Economics, 10th Edition

By Karl E. Case, Ray C Fair, Sharon Oster

Published by Prentice Hall

Published Date: Jan 3, 2011

Description

Reviewers tell us that Case/Fair/Oster is one of the all-time bestselling POE texts because they trust it to be clear, thorough and complete.   Case/Fair/Oster readers also come away with a basic understanding of how market economies function, an appreciation for the things they do well, and a sense of things they do poorly.  Readers begin to learn the art and science of economic thinking and begin to look at some policy and even personal decisions in a different way.
