Usually, my students have not been economics majors, although many have decided to major or minor in economics after taking this course. My goals have always been to make students aware of social issues in the world around them and to facilitate their understanding of these issues and related policy options from an economic perspective. I have always hoped this would inspire students to become involved with the issues in order to make this a better world. Students are often unaware that the important issues of our day, even ones that directly affect them—the environment, our healthcare system, our educational system, crime and drugs, and matters as weighty as war and peace—are rooted in economics. Furthermore, students often set aside as too complex the issues that \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cspan\u003eare \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cspan\u003erecognized as economic, such as unemployment and inflation or trade and budget deficits.

They need to comprehend these issues to make sound choices and form intelligent opinions. Of course, before students are willing to commit them- selves to the lifelong learning of economics, they first need to be convinced that it \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cspan\u003eis \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cspan\u003erelevant to their lives and that it \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cspan\u003eis \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cspan\u003einteresting! \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan\u003eThe discussion of issues in this book is lively, relevant, and current. I have deliberately included and highlighted issues of gender, race, and ethnicity throughout the text, as well as issues that are international in scope. (Diversity issues are highlighted with a “diversity” icon and are more completely discussed in Chapter 5, and international topics are highlighted with a “global” icon and are carefully discussed in the four international chapters, Chapters 10–12 and Chapter 17.) Students are invited to broaden their sensitivity to global and multicultural issues through topics such as migrant farm workers, Colombian coca growers, immigrants to the United States, court rulings on affirmative action, the incidence of hate crimes, and others.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"page\" title=\"Page 18\"\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"layoutArea\"\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"column\"\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan\u003eFurther, they are offered an understanding of the incredible poverty found in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, not to mention the poverty that takes place in the United States. \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan\u003eEconomic theory is used to analyze social and economic issues and the implications of potential policies.

The text is written in a clear and student-friendly manner. Graphs are straightforward, and normally illustrate only one concept per graph.
