Inflation, Deflation, and Unemployment


The Economy can be an intimidating subject for some readers. They might feel that it's too complicated to understand, or that it's just for adults. This illuminating volume explains facets of the economy and how they are measured in plain language. It offers age-appropriate, real-life illustrations of the concepts to help middle-school readers relate on a personal level. Historical and current examples are cited throughout the text, which support curricular standards outlined in the C3 Framework for Social Studies State Standards.
