The purpose of "Economics Is Everywhere" by Daniel S. Hamermesh is
to illustrate the wide range of daily activities to which an
economic way of thinking can be applied. The 400 vignettes were
inspired by news stories, television shows, movies, music, family
events, and other facets of daily life. Some vignettes were
suggested by students or colleagues. The book is organized into
three parts to follow the topical arrangement of a typical
introductory microeconomic textbook. These vignettes apply what
students learn in their introductory microeconomics textbook. They
focus on the student's ability to apply formal analysis with myriad
of examples that come out of their daily activities. After studying
this applications/issues book, students will be able to read a
newspaper or magazine and understand their own daily activities in
a new, economic way - and as a result, understand the economics at
work around them.
