This lively, accessible anthology features progressive perspectives on today’s most important economic debates, while debunking some of the myths promoted by the mainstream business press. The updated 16th edition includes research and analysis on U.S. and global financial institutions, stimulus and bailouts, debt and deficits, unemployment, austerity, inequality, energy and environmental policies, health-care policy, worker activism, and much more.
Perfect for introductory-level social science courses, Current Economic Issues is an invaluable tool for understanding the current crisis and proposed policy responses. Its well-researched, accessible articles are drawn from Dollars & Sense, the leading magazine of popular economics.

“The articles in Current Economic Issues are unique in their ability to draw on both passion and intellect from students of all political persuasions.” —DAVID E. KAUN, University of California–Santa Cruz
