This reference covers economics, the nexus and engine that runs society, affecting societal well-being, raising standards of living when economies prosper or lowering citizens through class structures when economies perform poorly.--Provided by publisher.
"This four-volume set brings economic topics down from the abstract stratosphere to the grounded experiences of people's lives. When the housing bubble pops, there are equations that predict it and numerical figures to size up its consquences. There are also narratives explaining how the bubble expanded, the social actors entangled in it and their values, and the social consequences of its popping. There are other books that go into great detail about the state of the academic field and the complexity of its methodological protocols. By contrast, this set offers historical and ethnographic narratives along with analytic descriptions of economics, social identity, and collective, intersubjectively shared experience."--Provided by the publisher.
