Applied Economics: Thinking Beyond Stage One, Sowell, Thomas
1 Sowell, Thomas Applied Economics: Thinking Beyond Stage One
Basic Books 2003-11-13 0465081436 / 9780465081431 2nd Hardcover Used: Like New Very Good Hardcover 
Looks unread. DJ has light rubbing. The ideal companion volume to the acclaimed Basic Economics-a guide to how our economic decisions turn out in practical terms.The application of economics to major contemporary real world problems-housing, medical care, discrimination, the economic development of nations-is the theme of this new book that tackles these and other issues head on in plain language, as distinguished from the usual jargon of economists. It examines economic policies not simply in terms of their immediate effects but also in terms of their later repercussions, which are often very different and longer lasting. The interplay of politics with economics is another theme of Applied Economics, whose examples are drawn from experiences around the world, showing how similar incentives and constraints tend to produce similar outcomes among very disparate peoples and cultures.

General Chemistry Student Solution Manual [Paperback] by WHITTEN, WHITTEN
2 WHITTEN General Chemistry Student Solution Manual [Paperback] by WHITTEN
Brooks Cole 1999-08-19 0030212332 / 9780030212338 Paperback Used: Good Paperback 
Item is in good condition. corners bumped. Inside pages clean with no marks. Book askew. Used sticker on spine. This Solutions Manual supplements the textbook, General Chemistry, sixth edition, by Kenneth W. Whitten, Raymond E. Davis and M. Larry Peck. The solutions of the 1317 even-numbered problems at the end of the chapters have been worked out in a detailed, step-by-step fashion...The problems at the end of the chapters are a review, a practice and, in some cases, a challenge to your scientific problem-solving abilities. It is the fundamental spirit of this Solution Manual to help you to understand the scientific deductive process involved in each problem. In this manual, we provide you with a solution and an answer to the numerical problems, but our emphasis lies on providing the step-by-step reasoning behind the mathematical manipulatioins. In some cases, we present as many as three different approaches to solve the same problem, since we understand that each of you has your own unique learning style. In stoichiometry as well as in many other types of calculations, the 'unit factor' method is universally emphasized in general chemistry textbooks. We think that the over-emphasis of this method may train you to regard chemistry problems as being simply mathematical manipulations in which the only objective is to cancel units and get the answer. Our goal is for you to understand the principles behind the calculations and hopefully to visualize with your mind's eye the chemical processes and the experimental techniques occurring as the problem is being worked out on paper. And so we have dissected the 'unit factor' method for you and introduced chemial meaning into each of the steps.
