The Checkpoints at the end of each major section of a chapter have been reorganized to separate practice with basic analysis and “In the News” applications. Worked solutions are provided for both types of questions.
Major Content Changes in Introductory Chapters
Chapter 1 has been reworked in order to strengthen the explanation and illustration of the economic way of thinking by placing the student center stage and focusing on the decision to remain in school or get a full-time job. The goal is to engage students from the outset of the course, grabbing their attention and showing them the relevance of economics and its place in everyday life. The explanation of the scientific method in economics has also been revised and improved.
Chapter 3 has a more gradual and fully illustrated explanation of the mutual gains from trade arising from comparative advantage and a new Eye On box on the power of specialization and trade through the classic story of the production of the pencil.
Major Content Changes in Micro Chapters
The following are some of the motivating questions and features of Eye On boxes and end-of chapter problems in the sixteen micro chapters:
What do you do when the price of gasoline rises?
Should price gouging be illegal?
Can the President repeal the laws of supply and demand?
Does Congress decide who pays the taxes?
Who wins and who loses from globalization?
How can we limit climate change?
Should America build a high-speed rail network like Europe’s?
How do you avoid buying a lemon? How much would you pay for a song?
Which store has the lower costs: Wal-Mart or 7-Eleven?
Why did GM fail?
Are Microsoft’s prices too high?
Which cell phone?
Is two too few?
Why is a coach worth $6 million?
Who are the rich and the poor?
Reorganization of chapters dealing with externalties, public goods, and common resources:
New Chapter 12: Markets with Private Information explains the lemons problem and its solutions, and the problems that arise from asymmetric information in insurance and health-care markets. A section of this new chapter is devoted to health care and the challenges that arise from asymmetric information, missing insurance markets, and public health externalities. The U.S. health-care market is compared with those in other countries and Laurence Kotlikoff’s voucher-based “Medicare Part C for All” is described.
