I wish A' Level Economics had been like this,

This review is from: How an Economy Grows and Why It Crashes: Two Tales of the Economy (Hardcover)
A very witty, enjoyable but educational read and I commend the authors for making the subject matter interesting by the clever manner in which this book was written. It's clearly aimed at their American audience as all the major characters are based on American politicians and economists with a fishy twist in their names but whilst that adds to the enjoyment of the book it wouldn't be any less informative if you'd never heard of any of them. The authors do indulge themselves a little by putting in their own doomsday scenario of what could happen if politicians don't take a different route to sorting out our current economic woes but after what has happened over the past couple of years who is to say that they aren't right.
I bought this as a holiday read so didn't want anything too heavy and I found it to strike the right balance of being a light read on a serious subject. If only A'Level Economics had been taught this way 30 years ago, I might have taken more interest!
