About the Author
Jerry M. Rosenberg is professor emeritus of Global Business and Management at Rutgers University. He has been acclaimed by The New York Times as "America's Leading Business and Technological Lexicographer."
This volume presents a compelling overview of these trying economic times and is highly recommended for public libraries as well as community college and academic libraries. Some may wish to add it to their personal libraries as a ready reference for this crisis in our nation's history.
-- "American Reference Books Annual"
This edition adds information from 2010 to 2012 (such as the Arab Spring and the Occupy Wall Street movement) and covers events, regulations, banks, corporations, industries, key people, government programs, and financial instruments. Most entries range from a few lines to a paragraph, with some complex topics getting several pages. The scope is international and nonbiased. A solid choice for most economics collections; libraries owning the first edition will want to replace.

Some of the entries in this new volume include extensive summaries, e.g., those for ARRA, the American Jobs Act, and TARP.
