Economics in Film and Fiction (Hardback)

£75.00
Usually despatched within 2 weeks.

Synopsis

Economics is everywhere. It's in business. It's in government. It's in our personal lives. Now, this ground-breaking textbook supplement brings this reality to the classroom. The book uses both contemporary and classic film and literature to illustrate 33 fundamental concepts in introductory economics. Designed for use in introductory economics courses, the clearly organized text brings both sides of the lectern closer together through real-life illustration of economic concepts in such favorites as Jaws, Legally Blonde, Casablanca, The Great Gatsby, The Scarlet Letter, and The Da Vinci Code. Each economic topic is described and terms are defined. A plot synopsis of a film or book sets the stage for each discussion. Using a detailed scene description, the authors then show how the scene illustrates the concept under study. Classroom discussion and assignments are facilitated through a series of questions that probe deeper.
