I am a housewife in Oregon but I want to understand what I am hearing in the news, I want to engage in the discussion and be an informed voter. This book helped me with all those things.
Epping describes economic terms in a comfortable and understandable way. He uses real world examples that I can relate with. His topics are exactly in-line with the top stories in the news. His concise explanations help me understand the current economic problems and proposed solutions. Even reading the newspaper, if I come to a term I don't understand, I just open the glossary in the back of the book and get a quick and understandable definition... no wading through dozens of confusing web searches.
This book is outstanding and necessary. I think every American, from school kids to adults, should read it.
Mr Epping has done it again with his new book "The 21st-Century Economy." The readability of this 2009 publication strikes a nice balance between its wonderfully understandable prose content and the way it is visually organized.
I like the Informational Tools interspersed throughout. Quite helpful stepping stones that kept me on track.
The 74-page Glossary is another plus.
Unlike many books on popular economics, this one, while slightly left-leaning, is mostly even-sided and objective. Many others are conspiracy theories or one-sided political diatribes. (I do find the conspiracy theories kind of fun though) This book includes everything, including things like the United Nations, environmentalism, and income inequality. Whether you're a liberal or a conservative, though, these topics have an economic impact on current events, and that's what this book is about. Any survey omitting them would be incomplete.
This book should be required reading for all high school seniors, college students, and voters. I doubt even many of the politicians making major economic decisions understand these topics. Voters need to realize this!
The author says all the economies around the world are interconnected. A plunge in the stock market in the United States has negative effects on financial markets all over the world. If you are confused about how our country found itself in the current economic mess, how the world currencies affect our lives, what the virtual economy is, and how to invest now, then this book will be helpful.
- Mariusz Skonieczny, author of Why Are We So Clueless about the Stock Market? Learn how to invest your money, how to pick stocks, and how to make money in the stock market

Exactly as described, I would recommend this book to others that will take this political class in the fall. Satisfied!Published on August 15, 2013 by M. Williams
While this book includes many of the terms that other economics books do to explain the economy, I found that its emphasis on the UN, anti-US and socialism completely stilted and... Read morePublished on September 8, 2010 by Karri Peterson
