I'm not an economist. I had Micro & Macro in college and loved them. I listened to this book to perhaps bring back some of this fondness, and to hopefully explain some of the things I've been hearing in current events over the years.
But what I got was a good way to practice head bobbing and perhaps make it easier to drive myself off the road.
Instead, I recommend Alan Greenspan's book, The Age of Turbulence. Now THAT is interesting, and educational.
