Economic issues and policies can be fascinating to study but trying to understand their complex nature can be inaccessible and daunting. Applying abstract economic concepts that one has learnt in H1/H2 Economics is even more difficult for most students.
Many of the issues and policies discussed in this book – at the global, regional and local level – should not sound foreign to you, including issues like the haze problem in the region or the Fukushima nuclear disaster, presented from the perspective of Economics. This book is to help students become more attuned to how Economics plays out in the real world through pertinent issues and policies. This book also helps the student to understand Global, Regional and Local Issues and Policies to better appreciate these economic concepts. These issues and policies are also likely to appear in case studies or even essays in Economics examinations and tests.
