Title: Principles of Microeconomics (Lyryx)
Authors: Curtis, Douglas
Irvine, Ian
Keywords: Microeconomics

Issue Date: 2017

Abstract: Principles of Microeconomics is an adaptation of the text, Microeconomics: Markets, Methods, and Models by D. Curtis and I. Irvine, which provides concise yet complete coverage of introductory microeconomic theory, application and policy in a Canadian and global environment. This adaptation employs methods that use equations sparingly and do not utilize calculus. The key issues in most chapters are analyzed by introducing a numerical example or case study at the outset. Students are introduced immediately to the practice of taking a data set, examining it numerically, plotting it, and again analyzing the material in that form. The end-of-chapter problems involve numerical and graphical analysis, and a small number of problems in each chapter involve solving simple linear equations (intersecting straight lines). However, a sufficient number of questions is provided for the student to test understanding of the material without working through that subset of questions. This text is intended for a one-semester course, and can be used in a two-semester sequence with the companion text, Principles of Macroeconomics. The three introductory chapters are common to both books.
This edition has been revised and updated from the 2017 edition to cover the evolution of the Canadian micro-economy from both a technological and policy standpoint. The new edition also contains applications that are set in the context of the COVID-19 crisis.
