In order to best explain the principles of economics, The Microeconomy Today carefully explains the differences between reality and theory. This real-world focus is the central theme of this text. Throughout every chapter in Schiller, there is a constant interplay between theoretical principles and real-world events. Through the use of recent examples from journals and newspapers, The Microeconomy Today offers the most complete coverage of the issues and events to complement the real-world focus.
In addition to the discussion of the principles of economics, Schiller feels that the text must "teach" basic principles and reinforce them with a variety of pedagogical aids. Hence, The Microeconomy Today is noted for its numerous pedagogical aids that enhance the students learning and retention ability through every chapter. Numerous examples, colorful, well-marked graphs, chapter preview and review, running glossary, narrative summaries, discussion questions, and numerical and graphical problems constitute each chapter's pedagogical tools. In the 6th edition, we introduced a full set of graphing problems in the back of the text, to help instructors
