Principles of Microeconomics, 11th Edition

Published by Pearson

Published Date: May 16, 2013

Description

Intended primarily for the one semester principles of microeconomics course, this text also provides practical content to current and aspiring industry professionals.


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.
