More about Concise Guide to Economics
The book combines straightforward, commonsense analysis with hard-core dedication to principle, using the fewest words possible to explain the topic clearly. And each brief chapter includes references to further reading so those who are curious to dig deeper will know where to look next.
Jim Cox introduces topics ranging from entrepreneurship, money, and inflation, to the consequences of price controls (which are bad) to price gouging (which is good). Along the way, he defends the crucial role of advertising, speculators, and heroic insider traders.
The Concise Guide to Economics is a handy, quick reference guide for those not already familiar with basic economics, and a brief, compelling primer for everyone else.
