Why are there no taxes in Kathmandu? Why is rent in Manhattan so high? And who really pays taxes? These and many other questions about economics of interest to a lay audience form the basis of this excellent set, which is tailor-made for public and high school libraries. The staff editors do not provide an academic treatise on the complex, technical details of economic theory or principles. Instead, they focus on translating economics into an easily understood language, making this work highly useful for students--especially at the high school level. The six volumes cover money, banking, and finance; the citizen and the economy; business operations; the U.S. economy and the world; economic theory; and economic history. With the exception of Volume 5 (on economic theory), the volumes contain numerous well-organized chapters that adequately cover the topic. Volume 5 is arranged as an A-Z encyclopedia of shorter articles about fundamental concepts in economics and can be used as both a reference to the other volumes and a stand-alone reference. Numerous charts, diagrams, figures, and glossy photos are used to clarify concepts, and the set's glossary, reading list, and index are re-produced in each of the six volumes, making for easier cross-referencing. With the ever-changing nature of finance law and regulations, this well-prepared reference set will need regular updates, but it remains the resource of choice on economics for its targeted audience.--Dale Farris, Groves, TX Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
