|Real World Globalization, 15th edition.
|Current Economic Issues, 20th edition.
|Real World Globalization (15th ed.) is an essential guide to rapidly changing trends in global trade, investment, labor relations, and economic development. Its well-researched, clearly written articles are drawn from the pages of Dollars & Sense, the leading magazine of popular economics. They provide highly accessible analysis of global corporations, international institutions and “free trade” agreements, globalization and conditions of labor, international debt, environmental and resource issues, and alternatives to dominant policies and institutions. This fifteenth edition is thoroughly revised and updated, with new chapters on the euro crisis and the politics of immigration in Europe and the United States.||Current Economic Issues (20th ed.) offers critical perspectives on the major economic issues confronting the world today—including ongoing economic stagnation, fiscal policy and deficits, financial instability, the welfare state, environmental protection, labor and unions, economic inequality, and the changing global economy. One new chapter, on corporations, includes articles on market power, corporate PR machines, control of natural resources, stock buybacks, and more. Another new chapter, on migration, addresses such timely topics as economic debates on the effects of immigration on wages and labor conditions, reasons for the rise of anti-immigration movements today, and movements for immigrants’ political and labor rights.|
