Economics Explained : Everything You Need to Know About How the Economy Works and Where It's Going - (4th edition

Economics Explained : Everything You Need to Know About How the Economy Works and Where It`s Going (ISBN10: 0684846411; ISBN13: 9780684846415)
ISBN13: 978-0684846415
ISBN10: 0684846411

Summary: In its fourth edition, Economics Explained continues its announced purpose -- to explain that mysterious thing called economics. But there is a new urgency to the book. It is announced in the first sentence of the introduction: "Just in case the reader-to-be hasn't noticed, disturbing things are going on in the American economy these days." This new edition is about these disturbing things: a trend toward inequality of incomes, the appearance of a new "global
ized" capitalism, the "specter" of inflation. As before, Robert Heilbroner and Lester Thurow treat these problems in language that seeks to make clear their causes and treatments. In this straightforward, highly accessible reference, Heilbroner and Thurow -- two of America's most respected and articulate economists -- offer all the economics essential for becoming an effective investor, a savvy business decision maker, or simply an informed member of society.
