Trailblazers in Economics

Front Cover
The Rosen Publishing Group, Inc, Dec 15, 2014 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 136 pages
In our increasingly interconnected world, economics has become an ever more powerful, integrated, and dynamic force. In other words, what happens in Vegas doesn’t stay there anymore. In fact, decisions made by economists in London or Shanghai may well determine the fate of savings accounts for people in Montreal, Manhattan, and Mogadishu. As economics is an admittedly complicated social science, this book uses biography as a teaching tool—profiling the most important economists—because often the best way to begin understanding a complicated and important field is by reading about the people behind the ideas.
