Designed specifically for the one-semester introductory economics course for non-majors, Tucker's SURVEY OF ECONOMICS, Seventh Edition, delivers the most comprehensive and pedagogically rich treatment of introduction to economics available. Readable, sensible, and interesting, this text is renowned for its engaging presentation, emphasis on critical thinking, active learning environment, highly motivational pedagogy, unrivaled visual learning support, and numerous in-chapter applications and review opportunities. With its focus on the most basic tools and topics in economics in the context of real-world issues, students get the opportunity to see how economic issues play out at national and international levels. The seventh edition has been thoroughly updated to show students how economics impacts their own world through topics such as privatization versus nationalization, social security, carbon emissions, social-networking sites, America's housing bubble, and gasoline prices.
