For two-semester courses covering economics principles for business and economics students.

The relevance of economics shown through real-world business examples

One of the challenges of teaching principles of economics is fostering interest in concepts, including opportunity cost, trade-offs, scarcity, and demand and supply, that may not seem applicable to students’ lives. Economics, 8th Edition (PDF) by Hubbard and O’Brien makes these concepts relevant by demonstrating how real businesses apply them to make decisions every day. With the ever-changing US and world economies, the latest 8th Edition has been updated with the latest developments using new real-world business and policy examples. Students will benefit from understanding the economic forces behind their work, regardless of their future career path — opening trading on Wall Street, art studio, or bartending at the local pub.
