Economics for Everyone Six Edition contains the most recent economic data available from the federal government and presents this information in easy to understand terms. The book also examines the evolution of economic thought and the historical events that have affected the economic growth of the world's industrialized countries. The major theories of micro and macroeconomics are discussed, but the primary emphasis is how these theories were developed and taught by those economists who invented them in the first place. The main purpose of the book is to see economics as a reflection of the world in which specific economic ideas have developed over time. Or to paraphrase Winston Churchill: If we disregard history we are bound to repeat it.
