Description

Taking the Fear Out of Economics provides a comprehensive yet simple introduction to microeconomics, assuming no prior knowledge. The text attempts to take the fear out of microeconomics by recognising that there is a fear factor. This fear is addressed by using real world examples to enrich the theory. Each section finishes with at least one practice session. The wealth of examples and the emphasis on practice makes this text the ideal learning tool for introductory courses on economics..
