How a Recession Works

How a Recession Works

by Jeanne Nagle

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7–9—These titles use both historical and current events to demystify two relatively abstract ideas. Detailed explanations of economic indicators, business cycles, inflation, GDP, and the role the federal government plays in helping to control the economy are included, as are many other relevant concepts. The difference between a recession and a depression is made clear in both books, and real-world examples of all types are used. While the writing is fairly dry, it delivers clear and concise explanations that most students will be able to comprehend. Captioned color photos appear throughout. Included in the back matter are excellent lists for further reading and many governmental and/or oversight organizations.—Jody Kopple, Shady Hill School, Cambridge, MA
