The purpose of "Economics Is Everywhere" by Daniel S. Hamermesh is to illustrate the wide range of daily activities to which an economic way of thinking can be applied. The 400 vignettes were inspired by news stories, television shows, movies, music, family events, and other facets of daily life. Some vignettes were suggested by students or colleagues. The book is organized into three parts to follow the topical arrangement of a typical introductory microeconomic textbook. These vignettes apply what students learn in their introductory microeconomics textbook. They focus on the student's ability to apply formal analysis with myriad of examples that come out of their daily activities. After studying this applications/issues book, students will be able to read a newspaper or magazine and understand their own daily activities in a new, economic way - and as a result, understand the economics at work around them.
