Economics isn’t just about numbers: It’s about politics, psychology, history, and so much more. We are all economists-when we work, save for the future, invest, pay taxes, and buy our groceries. Yet many of us feel lost when the subject arises. Award-winning professor Timothy Taylor tackles all the key questions and hot topics of both microeconomics and macroeconomics, including:
- Why do budget deficits matter?
- What exactly does the Federal Reserve do?
- Does globalization take jobs away from American workers?
- Why is health insurance so costly?
The Instant Economist offers the knowledge and sophistication to understand the issues- so you can understand and discuss economics on a personal, national, and global level.
