A textbook largely concerned with comparing present-day national-scale economic systems. Chapters examining the economies of the United States, Japan, Russia, Poland, India, and other countries are organized into sections devoted to market mechanisms (capitalism), non-market mechanisms (socialism and communism), and combinations of the two in developing countries. An additional chapter examines the impact of regional and global integration. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR


An undergraduate textbook, revised from the 1991 edition to purge the traditional comparison between capitalism and communism. Instead, three forms of capitalism are compared--those of the US, Japan, and Germany--and economic developments in eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union are discussed. Annotation c.
