Chad Syverson's research spans several topics, with a particular focus on the interactions of firm structure, market structure, and productivity.
Freakonomics essays apply economic analysis to common phenomena, helping to foster economic intuition.
The first edition's focus on empirics continues. Integration of the empirical dimension is throughout the text in examples, applications, etc.
Figure It Out worked-out problems walk students through the process of how to use economic tools and analysis to think through a problem and develop its solution.
Make the Grade essays point out common pitfalls that students may encounter and help them navigate through the finer point of micro theory.
Optional Calculus appendices provide students with another way to understand economic theory.
- New Freakonomics boxes - on garbage, 3D printers, and Yelp, for example - help bridge economic concepts with the real world.
- New Chapter, Factor Markets (Chapter 13). Based on instructor feedback, the authors have written a new factor markets chapter that brings together factor markets in one chapter.
- Revised end-of-chapter problems to provide problems for every section of the book.
- Figure It Out: Online! The popular Figure It Out feature has been expanded by taking 2 problems from each chapter and placing them in an interactive tutorial setting. Video instruction guides students toward the solution of the problem step by step.
