Revised and expanded with the most up-to-the-minute data, The New Field Guide to the U.S. Economy brings key economic issues to life, reflecting the collective wit and wisdom of the more than forty progressive economists affiliated with the Center for Popular Economics. Complete with a glossary and analytical tool kit, the ten chapters range from “Banking Behemoths” to “Bye Bye Ozone,” covering owners, workers, women, people of color, government spending, welfare, education, health, the environment, macroeconomics, and the global economy.
