Interest in economics is at an all-time high. Among the challenges facing the nation is an economy with rapidly rising unemployment, failures of major businesses and industries, and continued dependence on oil with its wildly fluctuating price. Americans are debating the proper role of the government in company bailouts, the effectiveness of tax cuts versus increased government spending to stimulate the economy, and potential effects of deflation. Economists have dealt with such questions for generations, but they have taken on new meaning and significance. Tackling these questions and encompassing analysis of traditional economic theory and topics as well as those that economists have only more recently addressed, 21st Century Economics: A Reference Handbook is intended to meet the needs of several types of readers. Undergraduate students preparing for exams will find summaries of theory and models in key areas of micro and macroeconomics. Readers interested in learning about economic analysis of an issue as well students embarking on research projects will find introductions to relevant theory and empirical evidence. And economists seeking to learn about extensions of analysis into new areas or about new approaches will benefit from chapters that introduce cutting-edge topics. To make the book accessible to undergraduate students, models have been presented only in graphical format (minimal calculus) and empirical evidence has been summarized in ways that do not require much background in statistics or econometrics. It is thereby hoped that chapters will provide both crucial information and inspiration in a non-threatening, highly readable format.

The Harwood Fundamentals of Pure and Applied Economics series was a groundbreaking attempt to provide a comprehensive overview of modern economics. A series of short books - arranged into thematic sections - provides state-of-the-art accounts of key areas within the discipline. Although never completed, the series produced several landmark books. It is notable for: * charting the emergence of vibrant new areas of economics (eg 'positive' political economy) * the numerous examples it gives of major innovations like game theory and the new institutional economics re-vitalizing traditional areas of economics * attracting some of the most talented economists of its generation, including Avinash Dixit, Drew Fudenberg, Thomas Palfrey and Jean Tirole This collection reprints the series in its entirety, making all titles available in hardback for the first time, either as individual volumes, or bound together in mini-sets organized by sub-discipline.
