The Economics Book

Big Ideas Simply Explained

"Whether you're a beginner, an avid student, or an armchair expert, you'll find plenty to stimulate you within this book."


​At its core, the study of economics is how societies use their resources. This idea has been discussed for centuries, therefore you’ll find that the list of books I suggest below were written in the 1700’s, early and late 1900’s, all the way up very modern day.

My hope is that I’ve taken a topic that can be seen as dry and turned it into a collage of stories that drive home key economic points in an interesting and though-provoking way. ​​

Capitalism and Freedom
