This textbook utilizes the ideas and concepts that made the international edition a valued companion to economics students and lecturers the world over, but tailors its language and illustrations to better suit its Arab readers. Regional case studies, photographs and examples bring the principles and concepts of economics to life for Arab learners, who are encouraged to apply the information and data contained in Economics to their own environment and experiences.
