I'm a student in a first year Political Science course, and I have found this book very interesting in its most of the time unbiased view of economics. It is an easy read and a good starting point in understanding the confusing jargon in the world of economics.

As a student at Antwerp University - UFSIA I had to read this book (Economics explained) Afterwards we had to bring a presentation about one of the chapters. I chose for ch 15 "Where markets fail"

After two years of studying Applied Economics I didn't learn new things but it helped me to recapitulate what I already knew. Therefore this book is a good instrument if you want to have a complete view of the economic world. You look "behind the screen" of all day society.

Format: Paperback
I found this book to be an extremely easy to read refresher of the economic principles covered in undergraduate micro and macro economics courses. While it makes no attempt to hide that it is written from the liberal stand point the book strives for impartiality. It relates the principles covered to current events. This will enable the read to make his/her own edjucated judgements about the economic turmoil of current time. One over arching theme this book stress is that what makes economic sense does not always equate to beneficial social or political results.
