Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

This series examines and explicates some of the most fundamental and relevant economic phenomena in terms easily comprehensible to struggling high school readers. Dispelling any sense of theoretical mystery or intimidating conceptual abstraction, these books instead clearly demonstrate that economic processes are easily comprehensible chains of cause-and-effect, something that can be conceptualized with the clarity, linearity, and relative simplicity of a flow chart. Each book offers a nuts-and-bolts narrative "diagram" of exactly how these economic phenomena (such as depression, recession, inflation, and globalization) workwhat the causes are, what the effects are, what mechanisms trigger the causes, how the process can be halted, reversed, or mitigated, and what follows or replaces it. Narrative examinations of actual historical examples help readers draw point-by-point connections between abstract principles and real-world events.
