Example text

But from 1990 to 1991, real GDP actually fell slightly, which helped Bill Clinton defeat (the first) George Bush. One important consequence of these ups and downs in economic growth is that unemployment varies considerably from one year to the next (see Figure 4 on the next page). During the Great Depression of the 1930s, unemployment ran as high as 25 percent of the workforce. But it fell to barely over 1 percent during World War II. 8 percent (in April 2000). 5 percentage point difference represents nearly four million jobless workers.

We have already mentioned that about 150 million Americans hold jobs. Almost 54 percent of these workers are men; over 46 percent are women. This ratio represents a drastic change from two generations ago, when most women worked only at home (see Figure 5). Indeed, the massive entrance of women into the paid labor force was one of the major social transformations of American life during the second half of the twentieth century. In 1950, just 29 percent of women worked in the marketplace; now almost 60 percent do.

Economists are constantly seeking analogies to Map 2 rather than Map 3, treading the thin line between useful generalizations about complex issues and gross distortions of the pertinent facts. For example, suppose you want to learn why some people are fabulously rich while others are abjectly poor. People differ in many ways, too many to enumerate, much less to study. The economist must ignore most of these details to focus on the important ones. The color of a person’s hair or eyes is probably not important for the problem but, unfortunately, the color of his or her skin probably is because racial discrimination can depress a person’s income.
