Economics studies how people, businesses and governments use resources. What shapes our decisions? How do we allocate goods and services? What does a rational choice look like? In this third edition of Economics: A Southern African Context, the authors expertly guide us through the key principles of economics, providing a solid foundation in the subject. The text combines relevant Southern African examples with a clear and accessible narrative. By encouraging critical engagement with economic theories, it provides a basis for examining today’s economic, social, and political issues.
