Economic Policy for Future Presidents
About the Book
Ever wonder what politicians and reporters mean when discussing economic policy, and then wish you understood them better? What do they mean by deficits, debt, and tax policy? What is monetary policy or income inequality? What are the economics of climate change—and its remedies? If you’ve asked such questions, then this book is for you. To make the matter more compelling, it puts you in the Oval Office as the incoming president and walks you through essential issues, presenting the information conversationally, hoping to remain interesting, intending to help you become conversant, not an expert.
