About this product
- DescriptionThe New World of Ecomics, 6th edition, by Richard McKenzie and Gordon Tullock, represents a revival of a classic text that, when it was first published, changed substantially the way ecomics would be taught at the introductory and advanced levels of ecomics for all time. In a very real sense, many contemporary general-audience ecomics books that seek to apply the ecomic way of thinking to an unbounded array of social issues have grown out of the disciplinary tradition established by earlier editions of The New World of Ecomics. This new edition of The New World will expose new generations of ecomics students to how McKenzie and Tullock have applied in a lucid manner a relatively small number of ecomic concepts and principles to a cluster of topics that have been in the book from its first release and to a larger number of topics that are new to this edition, with the focus of the new topics on showing students how ecomic thinking can be applied to business decision making. This edition continues the book's tradition of taking contrarian stances on important ecomic issues. Ecomics professors have long reported that The New World is a rare book in that students will read it without being required to do so.
