- About Author
The 2001-2002 Edition of Economics Today presents economic principles within the context of the sweeping changes occurring in the economic landscape, including the Internet explosion and e-commerce boom, East Asian recession, expansion of global trade and investment, and concerns about inflation and rising interest rates closer to home. Economics Today clearly outlines the core principles of economics, so that students can fully understand and analyze these and other developments. All of the text's 150 new examples have been selected to grab and hold students' attention. These examples serve one basic purpose--to drive home the application of the theory just presented. New chapters explore the future of Social Security (6) and the emerging world of electronic banking (16).
