Economics: New Ways of Thinking shows students how to find economics in unusual and surprising places. It grabs their attention with real-world examples - the NFL draft, rock concert ticket prices, NASCAR - and then provides clear explanations and hundreds of supporting up-to-date graphs and charts to teach students solid economic principles. Students learn these basic principles in the context of globalization - the process by which the nations of our world are becoming increasingly integrated. Projects, internet research, and current events lessons keep learning fresh.
