Economix

How Our Economy Works (and doesn't work) in Words and Pictures

(1)
Stimulus: plans: good or bad? Jobs: can we afford them? Money: who's got it? Everybody's talking about the economy, but how can you evaluate what they're saying? How can we, the people, understand what the banks or government knows (or says they know)? Author Michael Goodwin asked himself the same questions and came up with a good answer: explore the development of economic thought, examine the reality of economic practice, add a wry sense of humour and tell all through the graphic medium. In a word, Economix. Goodwin's wit and clarity of writing along with artist Dan Burr's quirky, iconic art transform the "dismal science" of economics into a fun, fact-filled story about human nature and our attempts to make the most of what we've got ...and sometimes what our neighbors have got. Economix explains it all from the beginning of Western economic thought to markets, free or otherwise, to economic failures, successes and anomalies, to how our modern economy is grappling with war, climate change and resource limitations. The book's graphic format means complex ideas can be comprehensive and accessible.

The introduction says something about reading it within a few hours - well since I am not that comprehensive of economics in general, I need a little longer. But thats exactly the reason why I purchased it and up until now I really enjoy it! Its very visual and easy to understand since, even in the case of having to go back to a page, the pictures not only make me remember the scene it was explained in, but also the author mentions the page number you'd have to go back to. I recommend it to anybody who feels like s/he doesn't quite understand economic history, and if you are a North American Studies student like me it surely presents the country's progress quite well. Very happy about this entertaining and interesting read!
