      Chapter 1 introduces students to economics as the engine by which capitalism, free enterprise, private property and the relationship between employees, employers, and entrepreneurs create jobs. Additionally, this chapter also explores government regulation, supply and demand, and economic factors such as taking risks, investments and profit and loss. The evolution of economic precepts and principles, from ancient Greece, Rome, Europe and the Dark Ages are explored. Historical persons that shaped modern economic theory are presented including Moses, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Karl Marx, Joseph Stalin, William Penn, Winston Churchill, Margret Thatcher, and Ronald Reagan. This chapter also delves into the Industrial Revolution, World Wars I and II, and the Cold War, and their impact on economics. Worth mentioning, the impact of an economy based on Biblical principles is discussed for its historical value and includes a look at Marxism and Darwinian theory. Chapter 2 further explores the history of the Judeo-Christian and European influences that were foundational to the capitalism in the United States. The authors compare the historical teachings of Catholic and Ana-Baptist beliefs and provide a brief overview of the Protestant reformation and the influences of the Church on economic philosophy. This is done neutrally with no scripture verse support or proselytizing noted.  An in-depth look is given to the economic significance of the US Constitution, Mayflower Compact and the Bill of Rights. Students will briefly examine the impact of the industry, railroads, progressive education, unions, the New Deal, welfare, immigration, private organizations and “trickle-down economics.” Chapter 3 reviews contemporary economic issues including banking, creditors, credit cards, checking accounts, debt, impulse buying, mortgages, dividends, stock market, collateral, loans, bankruptcies, insurance, real estate, gross and net income, inflation, IRAs and 401Ks, tax audits, and much more.  Students are also introduced to the pros and cons of starting and operating a small business, along with post high school options: college, trade school, and military.

      A captivating look at the foundations of economic philosophy that will appeal to students-especially those without a desire to study the math and deeper theories of economic thought. All texts and activity books are softcover. ~Deanne

    A masterful account of this most amazing American. "A biography of Franklin written with a sweep and verve worthy of its subject and brilliantly illustrated." — The New Yorker. This superb biography of the printer, statesman, author, reformer, inventor and ambassador reveals a Benjamin Franklin who in his time lived more lives than many men together. The brilliance and inexhaustible ingenuity of mind that fascinated his contemporaries continues to charm us now in Daugherty's work of perhaps America's most distinguished citizen and most interesting human being. Here is an understanding of the Poor Richard that underlay all Franklin's life, through honors and distinctions, foreign and domestic, saying with shrewd Yankee economy: "Well done is better than well said." As with all of Daugherty's books, his illustrations of two- and three-color compliment the meaty text for the enjoyment of all. (description by Beautiful Feet)

    Although people have always regarded Benjamin Franklin as one of the most famous inventors in American history, few people realize that his genius was, in fact, a mouse. Yes, that's right - a mouse named Amos, who found his way to Benjamin Franklin's home one cold night. As one of those closest to Ben, Amos found it necessary to write this (amusing) portrayal of Benjamin Franklin to counter all of the stories written by those who had never even met Ben and certainly never knew that Amos was responsible for a great many of the much esteemed inventions. This classic has been amusing young readers for more than sixty years. 114 pgs. - Melissa
