Field Guide to the U.S. Economy
By Jonathan Teller-Elsberg, Nancy Folbre, James Heintz and the Center for Popular Economics
This funny, clever and crystal-clear guide to the American economy is just what the doctor ordered if you want to understand how it all works but the thought of "taking an economics course" makes you shudder.
In each chapter the authors -- forty progressive economists -- use a mixture of facts and humor to give the reader an understanding of the U.S. economy. Charts, graphs, and a generous dose of cartoons and illustrations –- probably half the book -- help further define topics ranging from government spending to the global economy.
A "toolkit" lists sources of information for each chapter, explains how to read graphs, and gives detailed definitions of selected economic terms. By the time you’re through with this book you’ll really understand how and why so many working people are getting the short end of the stick. 237 pages paperback
