Market And Society: An Introduction to Economics

Paperback
A multidisciplinary approach to microeconomics that draws from the humanist tradition enriches this economics textbook. The basic concepts of classical microeconomics including price, production, distribution, and consumption are explained with historical examples and real-life scenarios drawn from the Canadian experience. The importance of context is emphasized to draw economics out of the realm of abstraction and consider the role of historical, national, and political forces.
