How do the major economic issues that dominate today's news!questions about gross domestic product or budget deficits or trade imbalances!impact the average citizen? Why are health insurance and college tuition increasingly expensive? What can be done about soaring energy prices?
In Modern Economic Issues, Professor Robert Whaples has crafted a course designed to answer just these sorts of questions!a primer in 21st-century economics for the non-economist. He first presents the results of a survey of professional economists around the country on what they consider today's most urgent economic issues!the ones all of us most need to understand. Professor Whaples then puts his award-winning teaching skills to work to shape an accessible course, explaining not only those urgent issues but also the raw data economists use to describe their shape and impact.
The result is a course that finally makes the connection between the economics you may have studied in school and the economics of the lives we experience every day.
