About this book


Investigating Social Issues uses economic theory to analyse real events and problems and to evaluate different solutions. It stresses the importance of value judgements and demonstrates how one person's success can be another's disaster. Newspaper cuttings have been used as an integral part of the text to highlight the causes, effects and solutions to these issues and problems. The topics covered include health, education, transport, income distribution, inner cities, regional policy, housing and the environment.
