This is Volume I of a two-volume set. Voices On The Economy (VOTE) is a refreshing change from the vast majority of economic textbooks. Instead of trying to sell you on the liberal, conservative, or radical economic approach, the book offers all three, side by side, without any biases. It helps you sort through the noise and rhetoric to compare and contrast different ideas for solving our urgent economic problems. Twelve issues are covered in depth, including healthcare, the environment, housing, product safety, livelihood, market power, international trade, economic stability, agriculture, retirement security, income distribution, and the federal budget. Whether you're passionate about economics or have never taken an economics class before, Voices On The Economy will engage and entertain you. It's filled with stories, exercises, and lively activities that teach you how to become fluent in multiple perspectives so you can be a respectful listener, passionate advocate, and intelligent debater. By understanding all the ideas on the table, you might be inspired to find a completely new way to think about economics. You might be our next great economic thinker.
