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.

This text comes packaged with an access kit for the new easy-to-use format of MyEconLab, which requires no set-up by the professor. With this, students can access practice problems for each chapter in the book, graphing questions, learning resources, and live tutoring. Professors who plan to use advanced course management online should order the book with MyEconLab in CourseCompass.
