The website also con- tains chapter summaries, self-grading practice quiz- zes, and links to the websites suggested for further research at the end of each chapter. Two decades ago, eco- nomic revolutions in Eastern Europe, in the former Soviet Union, in China, and elsewhere tore those societies apart. Young people battered down walls, overthrew established authority, and agitated for democracy and a market economy because of discon- tent with their centralized socialist governments.
Students like yourselves were marching, and even going to jail, to win the right to study radical ideas and learn from Western textbooks like this one in the hope that they may enjoy the freedom and economic prosperity of democratic market economies. The Intellectual Marketplace Just what is the market that students in repressed societies are agitating for? In the pages that follow, you will learn about the promise and perils of global- ization, about the fragility of fi nancial markets, about unskilled labor and highly trained neurosurgeons.
You have probably read in the newspaper about the gross domestic product, the consumer price index, the Federal Reserve, and the unemployment rate. After you have completed a thorough study of this textbook, you will know precisely what these words mean.
Even more important, you will also under- stand the economic forces that infl uence and deter- mine them. There is also a marketplace of ideas, where con- tending schools of economists fashion their theories and try to persuade their scientifi c peers.
As you begin your journey into the land of the mixed economy, it would be understandable if you are anx- ious. But take heart. The fact is that we envy you, the beginning student, as you set out to explore the exciting world of economics for the fi rst time. This is a thrill that, alas, you can experience only once in a lifetime. So, as you embark, we wish you bon voyage! Paul A. Samuelson William D. Nordhaus are particularly grateful to the reviewers of the nine- teenth edition.
Although they are too numerous to enumerate, their infl uence is woven through every chapter. Nancy King helped in logistics at the New Haven end of the operation. We are particularly grateful for the contribution of Caroleen Verly, who read the manuscript and made many suggestions for improvement. We are grateful to Dr. Xi Chen, who prepared the economic globes and reviewed the manuscript.
This project would have been impossible with- out the skilled team from McGraw-Hill who nur- tured the book at every stage. This group of skilled professionals turned many megabytes and a mountain of paper into a finely polished work of art.
Its impact on scholars and students has been particularly profound because it allows inexpensive and rapid access to vast quantities of information. The Internet, which is a huge and growing public network of linked computers and information, is changing the way we study, shop, share our culture, and communicate with our friends and family.
In economics, the Internet allows us quick access to economics statistics and research. With just a few clicks of a mouse, we can fi nd out about the most recent unemployment rate, track down information on poverty and incomes, or investigate the intricacies of our banking system. A few years ago, it might have taken weeks to dig out the data necessary to analyze an economic problem.
Today, with a computer and a little practice, that same task can be done in a few minutes. This book is not a manual for driving on the Information Superhighway. That skill can be learned in classes on the subject or from informal tutorials. Rather, we want to provide a road map that shows the locations of major sources of economic data and research.
With this map and some rudimentary navi- gational skills, you can explore the various sites and fi nd a rich array of data, information, studies, and chat rooms. Additionally, at the end of each chapter there is a list of useful websites that can be used to follow up the major themes of that chapter. Note that some of these sites may be free, some may require a registration or be available through your college or university, and others may require paying a fee.
Pricing practices change rapidly, so while we have attempted to include primarily free sites, we have not excluded high-quality sites that may charge a fee.
Data and Institutions The Internet is an indispensable source of useful data and other information. Since most economic data are provided by governments, the fi rst place to For the Student: Economics and the Internet look is the web pages of government agencies and international organizations.
