The Only Economics Book You Will Ever Need.

Economics isn't just about numbers: it's about politics, psychology, history, and so much more. We are all economists - when we work, save for the future, invest, pay taxes, and buy our groceries. Yet many of us feel lost when the subject arises. Award-winning professor Timothy Taylor tackles all the key questions and hot topics of both microeconomics and macroeconomics, including:
* Why do budget deficits matter?
* What exactly does the Federal Reserve do?
* Does globalization take jobs away from American workers?
* Why is health insurance so costly?

The perfect read for fans of Freakonomics , The Undercover Economist and Naked Economics , The Instant Economist offers the knowledge and sophistication to understand the issues - so you can understand and discuss economics on a personal, national, and global level.
