An Illustrated Guide to the American Economy (Inglés) Tapa dura – 20 may 1992
Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
Too often we lack the basic facts we need to understand and judge what we learn about the U.S. economy. The New Illustrated Guide to the American Economy is a valuable asset for anyone seeking to make sense of economic news or -- more important -- to place it in a broader context. The book consists of straightforward, objective statements about the United States, each one explained in a page of text and a page of bold, four-color charts. At the same time it deals with the uncertainties of the data and the interpretations based on them.Listening to TV or reading newspapers raises a long list of questions whose answers would be relevant to the national discussion but are commonly unknown, ignored, or misunderstood, such as- How rich is the American economy compared with other times and other countries?- What is the extent of poverty in America?- What has happened to productivity and real earnings?- What is happening to the relative earnings of women or blacks compared with white males?- How heavy are American tax burdens today compared with earlier times and other countries?- What caused the large increase of the U.S. trade deficit?This thoroughly revised second edition brings the information up to date and expands the treatment of many subjects, including- the economics of health- problems in measuring changes in the quality of life- government capital and infrastructure, natural resources, and research and development- small business, multinational corporations, and trade unions- the distribution of income and its change

There is much more inside. Highly recommended for anyone interested in economics, politics, and the real numbers that put food in our bellies, clothes on our backs, and impacts the long-term health of our nation.
