Consuming Interests: Great Ideas in Economics is a comprehensive anthology for readers interested in developing a wider perspective on the economic interpretation of the world. Unlike an economics textbook, which is designed to teach the technical aspects of the field, the twenty selections in Consuming Interests help readers explore larger surrounding issues.
The selections will prompt lively discussion of such questions as: What kinds of underlying human motives drive markets? How should ethical principles influence economic policies? How should a country safeguard its economic interests in light of international trade?
