This is an excellent introduction and overview of economics.
I respectfully but adamantly disagree with the other reviewer (Joe in Seattle): this is a very mainstream overview of economics. Navarro might be more of a saltwater (e.g., Harvard) than freshwater (e.g., Chicago) economist, but both of these schools are quite mainstream. Hayek, on the otherhand, is an Austrian economist (even though he was at Chicago, he's not considered part of the freshwater school...), and Austrians are on of the main heterodox schools. (Currently, there are reasonable articles at Wikipedia on "Saltwater and freshwater economics"--which describes the left and right wings of the mainstream--and on "Heterodox economics.")
