Summary

The definitive text in its field since 1975, the Seventh Edition continues the timely examination of different economic systems--both in theory and in practice. Gregory and Stuart have revamped the text to mirror major changes within the global economy of the 21st century. In addition to a new title, the book now features more emphasis on transition, the acceleration of globalization, present trading agreements, and recent exchange rate regimes.

Parts I-III lay the groundwork for later comparisons by outlining traditional systems (plan and market) as well as a broad spectrum of system variants. Also, these parts cover the impact of globalization and the emergence of important regional clusters. Parts IV-VI primarily address the era of transition dating from the late 1980s through the 21st century.

  • New! An increased emphasis on transition reflects fundamental changes around the world.
  • New! The authors have incorporated the latest ideas on privatization, the changing role of the state, and developments in corporate governance.
  • New! The discussion of key regional clusters covers Asia, as well as Western and Eastern Europe--giving students a wide variety of case studies for comparison.
  • New! The HM ClassPrep with HM Testing 6.0 CD-ROM offers instructors a comprehensive list of support tools, such as PowerPoint slides, lecture outlines, and a customizable test bank.
