Changing the world through economics. Modern-Accessible-Interesting-Practical-Evidence-Based-Globally-Engaged. Built from the ground up to focus on what matters to students in today's high-tech, globalized world, Dean Karlan and Jonathan Morduch's Economics, Microeconomics, and Macroeconomics represent a new generation of products optimized for digital delivery and available with best-in-class adaptive study resources in McGraw-Hill Connect. A familiar curriculum is combined with material from new research and applied areas, such as finance, behavioral economics, and the political economy, to show students what they're learning really matters. Students and faculty will find content that breaks down barriers between what takes place in the classroom and what happens in our nation and broader world, with applications that are driven by empirical evidence, data and research. The second edition fulfills four fundamental commitments: show how economics connects to important ideas and real world issues; teach principles as evidence-based tools for tackling real situations; appeal to today's globally-engaged and socially aware students; and, provide a balanced, empirical data-driven view that pits theory against data Karlan and Morduch show students that economics is a tool that can improve one's own life and the world around them. Through understanding and interpreting empirical data students can make socially aware and informative decisions. We challenge students to problem solve using data-a skill that will impact their own lives and potentially the economic challenges faced by the global community.
