    "Maybe you want answers related to economics.."
    If you could sum up The Economic Naturalist in three words, what would they be?

    Compact, Funny, Interesting


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I was surprised how many interesting facts I can learn from such a questionary. In fact, some of the answers were very surprising and make quite a lot sense. Various economical laws and dependencies were the basis of these answers.

    "Crystallises common sense"

    Ever get that feeling that something is just common sense? Well this book gives us the Economist's insight as to what constitutes that sense, as well as much else. He clearly explains concepts that we already know to be true, such as the Opportunity Cost of giving ones time, in plain language and with really good examples throughout.

    A perfect introduction to economics, but mostly a really good listen into the reasons behind myriad everyday oddities!
