Synopsis: The economic news of the last several years has been remarkable—-from the collapse of the “New Economy” to the buildup of a war economy, ballooning housing prices, and proposals to privatize Social Security and Medicare. The tenth edition of Current Economic Issues is an invaluable tool for understanding the real world economics behind the headlines. Its 47 articles offer progressive perspectives on major economic news stories, along the way debunking dozens of myths broadcast by the business press. The book starts with an examination of the recent economic recovery, and explains why so many have been left out of it at the same time that others have made a killing. It takes a close look at the factors that have made labor organizing more difficult, from new laws and regulations, to the rise of Wal-Mart. Three chapters scrutinize the impact of the Bush Administration’s fiscal policies, including rollbacks in social spending, efforts to privatize major government programs, and recent tax cuts. Later chapters uncover the reality behind hot-button issues like offshoring, the falling dollar, energy policy, and the rise of the China export-economy. The final chapters look at the uneven impact of natural disasters, environmental disasters, and epidemics. The book concludes with examples of underreported efforts to advance economic alternatives. A great resource to keep your intro courses fresh, topical, engaging, and accessible. The sharply written, well-researched articles are drawn from the pages of Dollars & Sense, the bimonthly magazine of popular economics. Dollars & Sense also publishes Real World Macro, Real World Micro, Real World Globalization, The Wealth Inequality Reader, Introduction to Political Economy, Unlevel Playing Fields: Understanding Wage Inequality and Discrimination, The Environment in Crisis, Grassroots Journalism, Striking a Balance, and Real World Banking.
