    Basic Economics has been written with the thought that learning economics should be not only a relaxed experience but also an enjoyable one.

    Knitting Maniac says: "Insufferable narrator, clear and interesting book"
    "required reading"
    Overall

    This book should be required reading in every high school in the country. It explains very simply why a market economy is the most efficient and thus delivers the highest standard of living for its participants. It points out where much that passes as common knowledge is wrong and why. Even those of us in the business world start to believe some of the common statements in the media about economics as we all here them day in and day out. It was nice to feel grounded again to be reminded how and why the system works and what happens when government tries to circumvent the market. Read it then give it to your kids.
