Product description

Review

"This new edition of "The Armchair Economist" is a wide-ranging, easily digested, unbelievably contrarian survey of everything from why popcorn at movie houses costs so much to why recycling may actually reduce the number of trees on the planet. Landsburg valiantly turns the discussion of vexing economic questions into an activity that ordinary people might enjoy." - Joe Queenan

This new edition of "The Armchair Economist" is a wide-ranging, easily digested, unbelievably contrarian survey of everything from why popcorn at movie houses costs so much to why recycling may actually reduce the number of trees on the planet. Landsburg valiantly turns the discussion of vexing economic questions into an activity that ordinary people might enjoy. Joe Queenan"

Synopsis

Landsburg aims to show how economic thinking illuminates the entire range of human behaviour. But instead of focusing on the workings of financial markets and international trade, he looks at the details of daily life to reveal what the laws of economics tell us about ourselves.
