The great American economy : how inefficiency broke it and what we can do to fix it by Stephen L Slavin( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many Americans feel that the economy is no longer working for them and that "the American Dream" has become a sham. This book explains the underlying reasons for this gloomy outlook and lays out a clear plan for making the American economy work for everyone, not just the top 1 percent. The heart of the problem, says economist Steve Slavin, is gross inefficiency. Since the end of World War II, America has been wasting vast amounts of its resources. As examples he cites the following key sectors: Healthcare--we spend nearly twice as much as other industrialized nations but achieve no better results; Education--just half of our eighteen-year-olds can function at an eighth-grade level, while many European and Asian countries do far better educating their young people; Transportation--by relying on cars instead of mass transit, we spend much more than comparable nations; The military--several decades after the Cold War our military budget continues to be almost 40 percent of the world's total military spending, while few politicians ever question the necessity for such massive outlays. In these areas and other sectors of the economy, Slavin proposes sweeping changes to eliminate inefficiency. These would include a restructuring of our healthcare system to make it affordable for all, a major push toward public transportation, increased emphasis on quality results from our education system, ways to eliminate waste throughout our vast military-industrial complex, and a renewed emphasis on manufacturing.--

Math Basics Made Easy by Stephen L Slavin( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There's an unspoken weak spot in our society ... most adults can't do basic math. A recent U.S. Department of Education study found that American adults are largely unable to calculate tips, understand their mortgage payments, or even figure out their weekly salary when told their hourly wage. Though we live in a world where numbers, percentages and statistics are tossed at us daily? a world that expects us to make sense of these figures? 87% of American adults are deemed "non-proficient" at math, according to a recent Education Department study. But there is hope. As the scope of this problem has become more publicized, community colleges have moved in to help, offering courses to help adults gain math proficiency. And programs and books have been created to address the issue, too. Still, most adults need to start their math journey is back at the beginning, and few resources have been developed to address the earliest math skills. Singing Turtle Press, publisher of the award-winning Algebra Survival Guide, is coming to the rescue, though, with a new book that helps adults master foundational math concepts. Math Basics Made Easy, a new offering in eBook format, teaches adults the four fundamental math operations: adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. "These four skill areas are the foundation stones of mathematics," says co-author Steve Slavin. "Because most Americans have never mastered these skills, they haven't gotten very far in math. And that has closed the door to many high-paying careers." Slavin should know about these problems. He has devoted his life to teaching math, and to writing books to help people grasp math. Slavin believes that no matter how far behind a person may be in math, "it's never too late to learn math, even if one must go back to the very first grade." Math Basics Made Easy presents early math concepts in a format that works for adults. The book offers brief, easily understood lessons with worked-out sample problems, followed by a collection of practice problems for the reader. Answers are provided to all practice problems, so readers get instant feedback on how well they are progressing. Within each of the four content areas? adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing? concepts are taught sequentially, easiest concepts first, most challenging topics last. The book is heavy on practice because Slavin believes that we "learn math by doing math." The benefit, though, is that anyone who works his way through this book will learn the basics of math and thereby put himself in a position to move on to more challenging topics. In today's challenging economic times, Math Basics Made Easy offers a gateway to better opportunities for today's job-seeker. Slavin's co-author, Ginny Crisonino, also teaches math daily, serving as Mathematics Chair at Union County College, Cranford, NJ. The book also gives anyone who never fully understood math's basics a chance to master them, for the book's message is that it's never too late to learn. A solid self-teaching guide, Math Basics Made Easy offers solid encouragement and competent instruction to anyone with the desire to master math's basic skills
