This primer for social work students introduces the general
definitions and concepts of economics and uses case studies in
social work to develop applied knowledge. The case studies include
stories of job training, substance abuse centers, counseling,
therapy, child protective services, and services for the poor. The
concluding chapters are devoted to topics directly related to
social work: economics of poverty, health economics, household
economics, the economics of labor, and government failure.
Subjects: Sociology, Economics, Political Science
