About This Textbook
This book will be removed from the B.C. Open Collection on June 3, 2024, as it has been replaced by a new edition. You can find the new edition here: Principles of Microeconomics - 3e (OpenStax).
Principles of Microeconomics 2e covers the scope and sequence of most introductory microeconomics courses. The text includes many current examples, which are handled in a politically equitable way. The outcome is a balanced approach to the theory and application of economics concepts.
The second edition has been thoroughly revised to increase clarity, update data and current event impacts, and incorporate the feedback from many reviewers and adopters. Changes made in Principles of Microeconomics 2e are described in the preface and the transition guide to help instructors transition to the second edition.
