Synopses & Reviews
This series is designed to introduce readers to some of the most fundamental and important economic concepts, processes, and institutions in a readily accessible, engaging, yet truly edifying way. Given the economic crisis of the late 2000s, this series and its subjects could not be of more urgent relevance. This set deals with why banks fail, how credit crises occur, and how taxation, stimulus plans, deflation, and the stock market all work. School-age children are being raised in an era of extreme economic anxiety and uncertainty, and they need this series to help them make sense of what they are hearing, be reassured with calming perspective, and be armed with solid knowledge and understanding. Rarely has a series been so needed and come at just the right time for students in great need of clarity and comprehension.
