About this book


A clearly written and self-contained introductory textbook that presents the principles of economics for non-specialist students of the built environment. Using relevant examples, it shows how economics can provide a logical framework within which construction activity can be analysed. The text assumes no prior exposure to economics and aims to give readers the confidence to use economics at the microeconomic and macroeconomic levels.
