Economics stripped of nonsense,
This review is from: How an Economy Grows and Why It Crashes: Two Tales of the Economy (Hardcover)
Economics is a subject that confuses people and economists most of all. They turn it into an arcane and difficult subject - more difficult to understand than quantum mechanics. Its not.
Peter Schiff and his brother strip away the unnecessary complexity and show how one exactly what an "economy" is, how it comes into existence, how its participants benefit and how it grows. In this book, by means of simple examples and entertaining cartoons, they explain the growth of the United States economy from the very beginning, how interference with the market has warped it, how the current crisis came to be and give useful pointers as to how it might be dealt with.
And they do it with fish. Not only will you learn a lot - especially if you are an economist - but it will make you laugh.
The best of entertainment that you won't put down until you reach the last page. Five stars is not enough: I give it six.
