Book Description: The nineteenth edition of Real World Macro is a lively and thought-provoking supplement to introductory and intermediate macro-economics textbooks. Real World Macro asks the questions that standard textbooks largely neglect: What's so great about growth? Is unemployment "natural"? What's so new about the New Economy? Along with covering the basics -- monetary and fiscal policy, productivity and investment, inflation and unemployment -- Real World Macro includes a chapter on major controversies in macroeconomics, such as the legacy of Keynesianism in the United States and the basics of Marxist economic theory. Real World Macro's readable articles are drawn from the pages of Dollars & Sense, the bimonthly magazine of popular economics. Dollars & Sense also publishes Real World Micro, Current Economic Issues, Real World Globalization, Real World Banking, The Environment in Crisis, Introduction to Political Economy, and Unlevel Playing Fields: Understanding Wage Inequality and Discrimination.
