DESCRIPTION

Now firmly established as one of the leading economics principles texts in the UK and Europe, this exciting new fourth edition of Economics by N. Gregory Mankiw (Harvard University) and Mark P. Taylor (Washington University), has been fully updated. New topics have been added in including theories on, for example, Marxist and Feminist theories on labour giving wider context to economic issues. A new chapter on Issues in Financial markets has been added covering the financial crisis and its causes and the final chapter has been updated to reflect the post-crisis world and how theories of the crisis have emerged.
