Short, Readable Book on Economics
By Arnold Kling
A Marginal Revolution Reader writes to Tyler:
There must be a good, short book out there on economics that illuminates the power of markets and the economic way of thinking.
I recommend The Best Book on the Market, by Eamonn Butler. I think it will satisfy the writer’s needs, because it is readable and relatively free of inside jargon.
It’s been too long since Economics in One Lesson. From time to time I work on such a project myself, and a co-author and I have a working outline. Maybe this summer we can crank it out.
My collection of essays, Learning Economics, appeals to people, but it would not suit the purpose of Tyler’s reader.
