Work with the latest news and real-time economic data

Economics is not a subject that stays the same year after year. It changes every day with each new political decision, the latest breaking news, or even small changes that you make in your daily life as a consumer. MyLab Economics keeps up with these changes with unique question types, such as:

  • Current News Exercises, which are updated every week and ask you to review an article and answer relevant economic questions.
  • Real-time Data Analysis Exercises, which bring in data directly from the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis’s FRED™ site. Every time FRED posts new data, you see it.

Study better — and at your own pace
