Robert Guell's "Issues in Economics Today" employs a unique format that allows instructors and students the flexibility to choose which issues they wish to cover in their one-semester survey course. This book begins with eight intensive core theory chapters followed by thirty-four shorter issues chapters that can be easily mixed and matched to create a customized course syllabus. In the preface, the author provides a list of suggested issues to cover in a course with specific themes, such as social policy, international issues, or business. For those instructors who want to "do it themselves", the author has also included a grid that shows which theory chapters need to be mastered before moving on to each issue chapter. Instructors and students alike will appreciate the solid theoretical foundation as well as the intriguing and timely economic issues explored in the book, such as sports, education, and ticket scalping.
