The author designed this book to develop the reader's understanding of the economic way of thinking by first providing verbal, intuitive explanations of concepts, then illustrating them with graphs and/or calculus. Optional chapters apply economic analysis to unconventional topics, including crime and marriage. In this second edition there are more analytical tools, including increased technical terminology, more graphical analyses and expanded discussions of topics and a chapter on game theory and oligopoly.
