INTRODUCTION TO ECONOMIC ISSUES
Economics has been called the study of the implications of choice. In this book, leading economists examine many of the major choices of policy and practice raised by the U.S. economy. The authors take up problems that are central to an understanding of our economy: market prices, profits, wages, stability, growth, and urban agglomeration. In their handling of these issues, the authors assess the costs and benefits that flow from an economic choice, and thus reveal the coherent structure that is economic science. This is an issue-oriented study of economics, designed to complement and give substance to the often elusive principles found in standard economics textbooks. Top-ranking economists run the gamut of economic problems from the traditional questions of growth, wage rates, and stability to the issues which face economists today: poverty, the balance of payments, an urban economics. Their aim is to make clear the coherent structure underlying particular economic systems, and to follow economic issues as they become economic policy.
