Synopsis

This highly innovative and intriguing book applies principles of microeconomics to unusual settings to inspire students, teachers and scholars alike in the `dismal science'. Leading experts show how economics reaches into the strangest of places and throws light onto the occasionally dark side of human nature.



`Sins and Needles' examines the economics of drug addiction, prohibition and liberalization; `Guns and Roses' looks at the contribution economists can make to understanding crime as well as marriage and divorce; `Body and Soul' investigates the economics of pornography, prostitution, suicide and religion; `Conception and Rejection' explores the controversial economics of assisted reproduction and abortion; and `Fun and Games' considers the economics of sport, gambling and music.



Not only does Economics Uncut illustrate how economics can be used to promote our understanding of a broad range of human behaviour, but it also draws upon research conducted in other disciplines from the social sciences. As such, this fascinating and highly accessible book will be of great interest to academics, students and researchers in economics, criminology, sociology, and psychology alike
