The Economy: Economics for a Changing World
The Economy is a course in economics. Throughout, we start with a question or a problem about the economy--why the advent of capitalism is associated with a sharp increase in average living standards, for example--and then teach the tools of economics that contribute to an answer.
For each question, the material is in the same sequence. We begin with a historical or current problem, even if it is a complex one, and then we use models to illuminate it.
