Houston, TX (PRWEB) July 15, 2014

What must Americans do to survive, compete and prosper in today's complex global economy? How do they overcome the excessive influence of ideology on public policy? Michael Douglas Gilbert's debut book, " America in the Economic World: Jobs, Necessities, and Economic Optimization," is a study of both political economy and economics. It allows readers to form their own opinions, free of political grandstanding, sound bites or oversimplification. Rather than bogging readers down with bland explanations of social sciences, Gilbert presents a refreshing new view of relevant topics in economics, finance, and history.

Using mainstream analysis, "America in the Economic World" covers fundamental areas, including taxation, employment, stimulus plans and mortgage lending, in an easy-to-read manner. Just over 200 pages, this self-contained book provides readers with the necessary economic and financial concepts needed to understand current events, such as lingering unemployment and the causes of the Great Recession.

"America in the Economic World" provides readers with easily accessible information, including:

Topics in history, economics and finance necessary for average citizens to form their own opinions.

The proper approach to economics via necessities and jobs rather than supply or demand curves.

The context needed to obtain a better understanding of current economic issues in the United States.

Original concepts (e.g., lifetime consumption and its relation to Medicare) as well as completely new and insightful descriptions of standard topics (e.g., abnormal downturns and utility theory).

"America in the Economic World" is a must-read for any American adult and will be appreciated by social scientists for its fresh approach. The book is available everywhere books are sold.
