Overview

The Economics Book clearly and simply explains more than one hundred groundbreaking ideas in economics, from the earliest experiences of trade to global economic crises.

Using easy-to-follow graphics and artworks, succinct quotations, and thoroughly accessible text, The Economics Book makes abstract concepts of money and trade concrete.

The Economics Book includes innovative ideas from the history of economics, from Thomas Aquinas' rules of markets and morality to Jeffrey Sachs' theories on international debt relief. Learn about the earliest ideas in economics, such as property rights and the function of money, and progress to present-day economic thought, from explanations on economic bubbles to the relationship between economics and the environment.

The Economics Book includes:

- More than 100 key ideas and principles in economic thought, from antiquity to present day

- Brief biographies and context boxes to give the full historical context of each idea

- A reference section with a glossary of economic terms and a directory of economic thinkers

The clear and concise summaries, graphics, and quotations in The Economics Book will help even the complete novice understand the fascinating world of economic thought.
