Extensively revised and expanded with the most up-to-the-minute data, this new edition of the Field Guide to the U.S. Economy brings key economic issues to life, reflecting the collective wit and wisdom of the many progressive economists affiliated with the Center for Popular Economics. User-friendly and accessible, the book covers a wide range of subjects, including workers, women, people of color, government spending, welfare, education, health, the environment, macroeconomics, and the global economy, as well as brand-new material on the war in Iraq, the Department of Homeland Security, the prison-industrial complex, foreign aid, the environment, and pharmaceutical companies.

A treasure trove of information...Essential for teachers, students...anyone who cares to know how the U.S. economy really operates. -- Juliet Schor

Quite possibly the best and most certainly the least solemn guide to the dismal science you are likely to encounter. -- John Kenneth Galbraith
