An Evidence-Based Approach to Economics
Throughout their new Principles of Economics franchise, authors Daron Acemoglu, David Laibson, and John List use real economic questions and data to help students learn about the world around them. Taking a fresh approach, the authors use the themes of optimization, equilibrium, and empiricism to illustrate the power of simple economic ideas, and their ability to explain, predict, and improve what happens in the world.
Closely integrated with the text, MyEconLab—Pearson's online homework, tutorial, and assessment program—immerses students in fundamental economic concepts, helping them to learn actively. As a result of the text's practical emphasis, students will learn to apply economic principles to guide the decisions they make in their own lives.
The Evidence-Based Economics are what make the textbook interesting. They provide a practical viewpoint to economics and show that the subject is not all curves and graphs and that it has aspects that are relevant to the lives of everyone.Student, Angelo State University
