This book has been written for the new Cambridge International Examinations syllabus in Economics and is endorsed by Cambridge International Examinations (CIE). It is divided into two main units, Core (AS) and Extension (A level), each of which represents a self-contained programme of study. As well as fully supporting the syllabus, the book equips students with the skills needed to succeed in the examinations, and describes how these skills and concepts will be examined by CIE. To help students understand the topics and prepare for the examination, the authors have included a range of stimulus material and self-assessment tasks, as well as specimen CIE question papers. Although specifically produced for CIE's A level Economics examinations, the book will also be of value to students and teachers of other Economics syllabuses.
