Economics & Politics

It’s no surprise that this category is among the most widely read in getAbstract’s vast online library. Economic trends and events inevitably influence the political climate – and vice versa. The actions of government, society and business are inexorably linked, creating an endless amount of material to discuss, analyze and reflect upon. You’ll find roughly 700 summaries covering the entire economic and political spectrum, from economic theory to manufacturing and distribution to the growing influence of emerging Third World countries. Some of our summaries offer a historical perspective of economics and how theories have evolved through societal and political changes. The depth and breadth of this category underscores getAbstract’s exceptional value as an informal learning source. Our writers and editors make even the most complicated material easy to understand and retain. Instead of having to wade through entire books, you get only the most essential information – presented clearly and concisely – in a reader-friendly format. You can access our summaries in seconds on your computer or hand-held device – from anywhere, at any time.

Economic Analysis

The American economy and its global influence is a common theme in this category. The most astute political and economic minds offer expert insight and analysis of capitalism, international trade, and industrial developments. You’ll also find an abundance of material on China’s role as a major player on the world stage and how the Chinese affect Western workers and consumers. With globalization altering the essence of how we interact and communicate, it’s imperative to stay informed and up to date. You’ll get all the help you need from getAbstract.
