Notă biografică

Austan D. Goolsbee serves as a member of the US Census-Advisory Committee, a research associate for the National Bureau of Economic Research, a research fellow for the American Bar Foundation, a columnist for the New York Times and an economic advisor to Barack Obama.

Steven Levitt is the William B. Ogden Distinguished Service Professor of Economics at the University of Chicago, USA.
Chad Syverson's research spans several topics, with a particular focus on the interactions of firm structure, market structure, and productivity.


Applications show how microeconomic theory informs consumer and producer decision making in real situations. These applications show the practical uses of theory today and draw on data from numerous different sources.

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.
