As students grow into young adults, they enter the world with the hopes and dreams of a successful future. Part of financial success is the ability to make good economic decisions. The state of the economy affects the job market, educational loans, and how much money people decide to spend or save. Readers will learn the difference between command and market economies, how different types of business ownership affect the United States and global economies, and how workers can protect their status in a productive economy. Understanding these key elements is essential in helping people make good economic decisions in their own lives.
