From the Back Cover:

Deciding what to have for breakfast, to take the bus or the car and whether to go out on a date are everyday decisions, but every decision you make is a choice, often with a wider-reaching impact affecting your own life and the lives of others. In other words, you are putting microeconomics into practice.

If one of today’s decisions is whether to read a microeconomics text, surely microeconomic theory should have something to say about life’s decisions?

While Microeconomics: A Journey Through Life’s Decisions starts with the important building blocks of microeconomic theory studied on all intermediate microeconomics courses, this text goes further than any other. It presents microeconomic theory as a debate, questions theoretical exposition, considers future developments and emphasises the social dimension of microeconomics as a framework in which economists attempt to interpret the world. It analyses topics not traditionally associated with microeconomics, such as age, sex, relationships, families, education, politics, terrorism, racism and death.

Key features:

  • End of chapter Challenges outline the many debates in economics and question theoretical exposition.
  • Each chapter focuses on the way that theory works to illuminate life’s decisions.
  • Extensive references provide a gateway to further reading.

This text is suitable as a core text for students of intermediate and advanced courses in microeconomics wishing to go beyond the confines of conventional texts on the market.

Importantly, it will also serve as a useful tool for other courses you will go on to take, such as economics of social policy, public sector economics, labour economics and international economics. 

Quotes:

“The contents are interesting and diverse in their application. The book clearly highlights the breadth of microeconomic theory.” Professor Sarah Brown, University of Sheffield. 

 “I believe students should be exposed to the latest ideas in microeconomic theory, and can only welcome such a textbook.”  Professor Nigar Hashimzade, University of Reading.
