Starting in August 2006, this text will come packaged with an access kit for the new easy-to-use format of MyEconLab,which requires no set-up by the professor and offers students book-specific practice, online homework, access to the eBook, and learning resources. (For that ISBN, click here.) Professors who wish to use advanced course management should order the ISBN above to receive the book packaged with MyEconLab in CourseCompass.Roger Miller believes that students learn best when they are motivated, and that motivation comes when they connect an idea to their day-to-day lives. That is why every chapter of Economics Today is packed with thought-provoking applications that give immediate, common-sense reinforcement to economic concepts. From international to local, corporate to consumer, policy to personal, these examples spark lively discussion both in and out of the classroom. The result is that students gain a natural understanding of economic theory and analysis, and they learn to use economic reasoning in their everyday decisions.
