DESCRIPTION

Fusfeld's clear writing style and explanations make The Age of the Economist accessible to and appropriate for both economists and non-economists alike. Intended for many introductory courses, this short text chronicles the development of modern economics through discussions of the major schools of thought and through biographical sketches of key figures. It demonstrates the relevance of basic economic ideas to the great debates of our own times, and it emphasizes how events, ideologies, and changing economic institutions influence the relationship between economic theory and policy. The ninth edition has been updated throughout, and chapter 15, 'The New Economy, ' brings readers up to the 21st century through a discussion of technology, free trade, and globalization. * NEW! Chapter 15: The New Economy. * A thoroughly updated and streamlined Suggested Reading section, now including useful web links. * Updates throughout text, particularly in later chapters
