Essentials of Economics 5th Edition PDF
Economics is the field of study that deals with the allocation of scarce resources among unlimited ends. The allocation of scarce resources calls for choices and trade-offs. With limited resources, society must choose to allocate them to the needs that are deemed most important: health care, law enforcement, education and research, public safety, defence against foreign threats, and provisions in case of natural disasters.
Essentials of Economics 5th Edition PDF focuses on these social needs and the market failures that result from people behaving as if everything were available to them (the ‘perfect competition’ or ‘full employment’ model). The book is written in a question-and-answer format. This approach allows the reader to ask questions and get answers. The book stresses the role of time, money, and information in the allocation of resources and markets.
