The Way We Live

Feigenbaum and Hafer’s innovative new text is based on the idea that economics is an integral part of students’ lives. Inspired by Economics: How We Live, economist Victor Fuchs’s 1983 National Book Award winner, the text provides an economic framework for exploring the wide array of choices that span a person’s life cycle.  The authors build from the individual to the household to the firm and then to the economy at large, moving from realistic examples from everyday life to the broad, enduring principles of economic behavior.
