Economics, 5th Edition (PDF) by Hubbard and O’Brien makes economics relevant by demonstrating how real businesses use economics to make real-life decisions every day. One of the primary challenges of teaching Principles of Economics is fostering interest in concepts that may not seem applicable to econ students’ lives.  Regardless of their future career path — trading on Wall Street, opening an art studio, or bartending at the local pub — college students will benefit from understanding the economic forces behind their work.
