*Tóm tắt : Understanding Capitalism: Competition, Command, and Change, Third Edition, is an introduction to economics that explains how capitalism works, why it sometimes does not work as well as we would like it to, and how over time it not only changes but also revolutionizes the world around us. The "three-dimensional approach" of the text focuses on competition in markets; command in firms, governments, and international relations; and change as a permanent feature of a capitalist economy driven by technical innovation and conflict over the distribution of income .

Nhan đề: Economic issues and policy / Jacqueline Murray Brux Số phân loại : 330.82 J102; Đặc điểm vật lý: xxiii, 448 p. : ill. ; 26 cm
*Tóm tắt : This book provides students with a grasp of basic economic tools through the analysis of important economic issues and their related policy perspectives. Economic theory is presented in a simple, market-oriented framework at a level of technicality that is deliberately appropriate for a basic first course in economics directed at non-majors. Complex topics more appropriate for a Principles of Economics course are left out or contained in appendices. In analyzing economic situations and the implications of policies, liberal and conservative viewpoints are effectively balanced -- the careful presentation of conservative and liberal viewpoints is one of the unique characteristics of this book .

Nhan đề: Cities, agglomeration, and spatial equilibrium / by Edward L. Glaeser. Số phân loại : 330.91732 E201L; Đặc điểm vật lý: 275 p. : ill. ; 23 cm
*Tóm tắt : 220 million Americans crowd together in the 3% of the country that is urban. 35 million people live in the vast metropolis of Tokyo, the most productive urban area in the world. The central city of Mumbai alone has 12 million people, and Shanghai almost as many. We choose to live cheek by jowl, in a planet with vast amounts of space. Yet despite all of the land available to us, we choose to live in proximity to cities. Using economics to understand this phenomenon, the urban economist uses the tools of economic theory and empirical data to explain why cities exist and to analyze urban issues such as housing, education, crime, poverty and social interaction. .
