Why do college students take economics? They may take economics to fulfill college requirements, because they think it may be the key to future riches, or for any number of other reasons. You know that the purpose of teaching economics is much larger, and the stakes are much higher—preparing students for informed and critical engagement with the burning issues of the day. And that's what Dollars & Sense Real World Economics books do. Here's what one college student was inspired to write to us:
Your analysis was incredibly helpful in understanding the recession and why recovery has been so lackluster. I simply wanted to express my gratitude for cutting through the smog of disinformation that our corporate media perpetuates and getting the facts out to people.
Current Economic Issues packs all of the punch—the incisive analysis and thought-provoking alternative perspectives for which D&S is known—into a concise format perfect for introductory-level classes on prinicples of economics or on current economic problems. This brand-new edition covers key controversies—the causes of ongoing economic stagnation, fiscal policy and deficits, financial speculation and economic instability, the social-welfare state, environmental protection, labor and unions, economic inequality, and the changing global economy. With a new chapter on consumers—including recent controversies about corporate abuses, consumer protection, and socially conscious consumer decisionmaking. Contributors include Randy Albelda, Dean Baker, James K. Boyce, Nancy Folbre, Rob Larson, John Miller, Juliet Schor, Jeannette Wicks-Lim, and many others.
