Summary

Highly accessible and relevant in today's economic environment, Economic Issues Today offers a unique approach to understanding what the practice of economics is all about. The authors cover fourteen current economic issues, providing for each an analysis and proposed solution from three different ideological perspectives: Conservative, Liberal, and Radical.

This acclaimed text is written specifically for an undergraduate audience; it requires no background in economic analysis and avoids economic jargon in favor of plain, everyday language. It has been updated to include current economic data, and an instructor's manual with a test bank and discussion questions as well as PowerPoint downloads are available as teaching aids.
