Economic Policy

Do higher taxes stimulate or stifle economic growth? Is a soaring national debt reason for concern or simply the price of doing business? Whose philosophies best address the wide spectrum of financial issues – the Republicans or Democrats? Few topics generate more conversation and controversy than economic policy. Not surprisingly, this popular category offers subscribers more than 250 summaries – and is constantly being updated so you can keep abreast of key economic developments. We make it possible for you to become better informed on a variety of economic issues and principles. Feel free to explore the roots of fundamental economic theory from luminaries such as Adam Smith, Karl Marx and John Maynard Keynes. Discover why some modern commentators predict that the ascension of China and India, along with other Eastern countries, will forever change the face of capitalism. Gain a better understanding of the complex relationship between Wall Street and the White House and its ramifications.

On the Money

Several of our summaries provide a fascinating look at the role of currency in the economy. You’ll learn about the different forms money takes – including electronic – and why some observers are skeptical about the ability of paper money to maintain its value over the long term. You’ll find lively debates about the gold standard and precious metals, the psychology of investment managers, the affordability of healthcare and the effects of globalization on commerce and free trade. When it comes to economic policy, getAbstract leaves no coin unturned.
