The goal of this book has always been to provide readers with a solid introduction to the economic issues facing the world today, using the methods economists use to study those issues, and the policy problems that those issues create. This revision includes updated information on such key issues as health care, distribution of income, unemployment, labor, and monetary policy. The authors have also greatly increased the focus on the international economy and economic growth.
