GOOD and EVIL: Tales of ECONOMICS in Transit
by Annette Meyer
The economy of the United States has been in turmoil for longer than most can remember. It seems like everyone is talking about The Great Recession or a jobless recovery, all the while pointing their fingers across the aisle, attempting to place blame on the other side. Is the increase in partisan politics the result of increased economy volatility or is it the other way around? What other factors contributed to our current situation and how do we fix a system that is obviously broken?
Annette E. Meyer breaks the economy down to its basic elements and discusses trends and projections in four key areas: higher education, healthcare, government, and consumer prices. She presents a thorough analysis of every major factor in economics over the past decades and more, and she backs everything up with real numbers and a review of the opinions of top economists and political thinkers. This is more than a crash course in economicsit is a roadmap to help you understand an increasingly complicated world.
