Book Description

8 April 2013
I believe that you will find BASIC ECONOMICS FOR STUDENTS AND NON-STUDENTS ALIKE to be a useful resource: whether you are a student who finds the material easy to understand or a student who is having problems understanding one or more topics covered in your economics class; whether you are taking an introductory economics course or an intermediate-level course; whether you are studying economics because you are interested in the subject or because you are required to take the subject; whether you are a student at all or simply somebody who wants to understand economics; whether you are interested in further studies or if you simply want to become better-informed as a citizen, voter, political “junkie”, or somebody trying to keep up with current events; whether you are looking for a learning resource in addition to other resources or if you are looking for a primary resource; or if you are an educator who wants an inexpensive resource for your students to use for any of the above reasons. You can use BASIC ECONOMICS FOR STUDENTS AND NON-STUDENTS ALIKE to learn the concepts involved in economics whether or not you are comfortable with the graphs, math, and statistics that people normally associate with economics. Graphs are not included, but both the graphs and the concepts behind them are explained; only basic math is included, and you can even skim over the math and still come away with an understanding of the concepts; statistics is not included at all. BASIC ECONOMICS FOR STUDENTS AND NON-STUDENTS ALIKE is an easy way to learn concepts relating to economics and the economy. It is a product of thousands of hours spent online, teaching basic concepts in economics to hundreds of students worldwide over the course of the past several years. From back and forth communications, I have discovered the explanations for the concepts that students find easiest to understand, as well as the areas that most often get misunderstood and under-emphasized. I have worked with students located throughout the United States and from many different countries, on six different continents; students from many different school systems with different points of emphasis; students with different levels of knowledge, different backgrounds, and different levels of interest in the subject. I have received numerous comments and testimonials regarding the teaching methods that I incorporate in BASIC ECONOMICS FOR STUDENTS AND NON-STUDENTS ALIKE. The subject matter included in BASIC ECONOMICS FOR STUDENTS AND NON-STUDENTS ALIKE comes from a compilation of many different textbooks at the introductory and intermediate levels. My goal was to include every subject in economics that normally will be found in an introductory level textbook of economics, microeconomics, or macroeconomics. Since different school systems, different classroom instructors, and different textbooks cover a slightly different combination of topics, BASIC ECONOMICS FOR STUDENTS AND NON-STUDENTS ALIKE is a little more comprehensive than most single introductory textbooks of economics. Some of the topics will be found in introductory classes in some schools, but in intermediate-level classes in other schools.

Completly relevent, and focuses on the concepts and theorys without the graphs, This makes the subject much clearer, and actually begins to make the graphs make sense. Absolutely chuffed I found this. Lets hope I get a pass on the exam in a month...!

5.0 out of 5 stars Idiots like me can understand this! 8 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is brilliant for anyone who wants to understand the basic principles and concepts of Economics. The main principles are concisely and clearly presented in a logical manner whilst the concepts are explained in an easy and accessible manner. I found it hugely enjoyable that I could understand Economics and it made me want to read on. I read the book in 3hours - a real page turner for what would otherwise be a dire subject. I would recommend it for A- level and Undergrads in Economics or anyone with a brain that likes academic ideas that can be applied to real life. Very Stimulating.

I am really enjoying this read, explains economics in a very simple practical way and I find I can understand technical content that other books left me completely confused about.
A very good starting point.
