Format: Paperback
found this book amazing. an introduction to economics in general and capitalism in particular. it is balanced as it gives voice to the theories of many great thinkers who both defended capitalism and those who opposed it, including Thomas Hobbes, John Stuart Mill, Karl Marx, Milton Freidman and many more. extremly thought provoking, especially (for me) the part where it says that humans have had more leisure time than any time in history, yet most of this leisure time is spent on either directly or indirectly buying commodities. the book also charts the history of capitalism from the knights templars and rennaisance florence to the merchants republic of the Netherlands and the east India trade company to finally the industrial revolution and modern day capitalism

An easy and approachable guide to the subject , which manages to address with clarity and humour,(The latter most evident in the cartoon illustrations)the nature and history of a very big idea. Well presented concise and easy to read,(in one sitting if pushed!)

A fantastic way of presenting a rather dry subject. While the guide is a bit superficial, it doesn't make political judgements and it beats reading the Economist any day.

Excellent overview - clear explanation of our dominant ideology with a balanced examination of competing criticisms.

I like a lot of the books from this series but this one in particular I charge with a bit of bias.
I believe that the author rather dislikes capitalism, that is what I gathered from the text anyway.
I think I even remember the part where it talks about the theories of Robert Nozick and the author
throws a silly ad hominem instead of engaging with the arguments properly. One word: Injustice.
In fact, I would suggest reading the Introducing: 'Economics' instead.
