US-centric, outdated and self-conceited,
This review is from: The Armchair Economist: Economics and Everyday Life (Paperback)This is certainly not the best or clearest pop-economics book on the market. I expect an economist to be necessarily inclusive of all sectors of society and the personal diatribes and perpetual introspect into exclusively US economic habits is tedious, irrelvant and intolerable for anyone who doesn't happen to live in America.
The examples all seemed very old too and I suspect the majority of this book was written at least several years ago.
