Real World Macro, 25th edition, is a lively, thought-provoking alternative to mainstream economics textbooks. Real World Macro asks the questions that standard textbooks try to avoid: What's so great about growth? Is unemployment "natural"? Why should inequality matter? Along with covering the basics--monetary and fiscal policy, productivity and investment, inflation and unemployment--Real World Macro includes a chapter on major controversies in macroeconomics, such as the legacy of Keynesianism in the United States and the basics of Marxist economic theory. It also takes a look at international trade and finance, covering such topics as the debt crisis and arguments for and against "free trade." The thoroughly updated and revised 25th edition contains new chapter introductions reviewing the concepts examined in each article, discussion questions relating them to a standard textbook, and new articles addressing the latest real world issues and controversies, including topics like the bursting of the housing bubble, the chaos in the banking industry, Social Security, offshoring, the impact of the declining dollar, and the persistence of the racial and gender gap in jobs and income.

About the Author:

Dollars & Sense publishes anthologies and textbooks that explain the workings of the national and global economies to a new generation. D&S books are used by thousands of college students every year. Unlike mainstream economics texts, D&S books offer clearly written information and analyses that place economics in the context of real life, questioning the assumptions of mainstream academic theories and empowering people to think about alternatives to the prevailing system. Suitable for students, professors, journalists, activists, and the general public, D&S books cover a wide variety of economic topics that are timely and particularly relevant in the current economic climate.

Review:

The principles of economics books (yes, even mine) tend to be on the dull side and leave aspects of the economy and economics unchallenged. Real World Macro and Real World Micro can spice up your course and lead students to ask the type of questions they should be asking. --David Colander, Middlebury College

Real World Macro's topical applications of macroeconomic analysis provide the clear, concise critical perspective lacking in most macroeconomics texts. --Richard D. Wolff, University of Massachusetts, Amherst

As textbooks become more conservative and less topical, I find that Dollars & Sense readers and books are more useful than ever in my undergraduate classes. They are jargon-free, up-to-date, and inexpensive--as well as consistently and thoughtfully progressive. I recommend them highly. --Robin Hahnel, American University
