Economics: A Global Introduction

Ananish Chaudhuri

Economics affects our daily lives in crucial ways. We constantly hear about recessions and unemployment, inflation and cost of living crises, economic growth and inequality, climate change and carbon taxes, interest rates and house prices, and tariffs and trade wars. What does this all mean?

Written in a highly engaging style, Economics: A Global Introduction cuts through the jargon to provide a comprehensive introduction to the basics of economics. The book includes applications of economic principles and insights from behavioural economics into contemporary issues such as global warming and the COVID-19 pandemic. The book is replete with real-world examples and anecdotes from politics, literature, film and sports to help the reader grasp fundamental micro and macroeconomic concepts. Student-friendly features include case studies, start-of-chapter learning objectives, discussion questions and answers, further reading suggestions and mathematical appendices. The book is accompanied by useful digital resources, including lecture recordings, PowerPoint slides and a test bank containing both multiple choice and essay questions and answers.

Suitable for both students who may pursue further studies in economics, as well as those choosing a different field, Economics: A Global Introduction is the ideal textbook for providing students with an economic perspective on the world.

Praise for this book

"This book introduces economics to non-economists in ways that they can keep the insights with them for the rest of their lives. Even in an introductory course it manages to delve into themes like AI, climate change and cryptocurrencies, while drawing on cutting edge research from behavioural and neuroeconomics."

--Sudipta Sarangi, Professor and Chairperson of Economics, Virginia Tech and Author of 'The Economics of Small Things'.

"This is a delightful and innovative textbook that demonstrates the author's deep commitment to teaching and student learning. His relevant and meaningful approach to economic theory and economic thinking, dealing with the major social, political, and economic issues that all of us face in today's world, is spirited and refreshing."

--Gary Gigliotti, Professor of Economics and Special Advisor (Academic Assessment), Office of the Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs, Rutgers University.
