I have only ever understood bits and pieces of Economics, but this course truly put all the pieces together for me. Since I used this in our homeschool, when my children hear something that the government is doing (or trying to do) toward reform they say, "But that can't work because..." and I love it. They are wondering why it's so simple for them to understand, yet our elected officials are doing things that anyone who has a working knowledge of Economics knows will not work.
It takes you through the history of Economics and gives examples that make it make sense and stick with you. I am keeping this one. Each chapter has multiple choice questions, short answer questions, and discussion questions. There is also a "For further study" at the end of each chapter. This one is a must have.
