This should be required reading for everybody who wants to offer an opinion on the economy and what politicains are doing right or wrong.
It gives you the minimum required, coherent explantions in easy-to-read sections with good easy-to-understand examples and where policy decisions are divergent, explains both sides of the argument so you know where politicians are coming from. It is organised logically and accessibly.
It also helps you to look incredibly knowledgeable at dinner parties. You end up stopping conversations and you realise just how tribal so much of economic politics is and just how little loud-mouthed people really know. Most politicians know less than what is contained in this little book.
