Summary
    The Economics of Social Issues: A Survey of Selected Topics expands the discussion of social issues such as the drug market and illegal immigration into the economic realm. The topics are chosen to help students develop a better understanding of economics and enhance their ability to engage in true economic thought.

    The materials explore topics such as economics and the family structure, crime and capitalism, selective enforcement, border control, economic efficiency and budget concepts, and falling crime rates in the 1990s. Additionally, the book includes selected readings from noted economists and social scientists Milton Friedman, Steven Levitt, and William Bennett.

    The Economics of Social Issues: A Survey of Selected Topics can stand alone or be used as a supplement to standard textbooks for courses in economics or classes that address public policy and social issues.

    Ron Liggett received his M.B.A. with a concentration in economics from The University of Texas at Arlington where he is now a senior lecturer in the Department of Economics. He has taught courses on the economics of crime, the economics of public policy, the principles of both macro- and microeconomics, money and banking, and the economics of social issues. His research interests include the economics of crime and the economics of social issues. In addition to his academic work, Professor Liggett is a Certified Public Accountant in the State of Texas.
