Most people don’t think economics can be life-changing because they confuse it with forecasting, charts, diagrams, numbers, math, and politics. The book you’re holding in your hands will change all of that. In plain English, Caleb Fuller shares how economics is about people, how they pursue their dreams, and what hinders them along the way. He shows how you’ve been too easily persuaded by pithy catchphrases and bumper-sticker slogans, even outright lies, that fail to grapple with the rich complexity of your life and human society as a whole. You’ll be offended when you realize that you’ve been “had,” but ultimately relieved when you see economics, and your life, through a new lens.
(Review From Amazon.com)
It is difficult to find an economics book to recommend, only because they tend to be somewhat dry and if you are not an economist many just leave us in the dust. Buy we found this book to be enjoyable, easy to understand, and valuable.
Mr. Fuller does a great job of getting the reader to understand many fundamental concepts of economics and why viewing them through an “opportunity cost” lens has great value. Both directly and indirectly he makes a great case for capitalism and freedom of markets as one of the most valuable concepts throughout history.
If you have any interest in what is happening with socialism today and the fatal flaws of that thinking this is an excellent book. It is brief, to the point, and anything but boring.
For some memberships this is a free book on Amazon, but it is also readily available from other sources. Worth the time.
