Economics: The User's Guide

August 2014, Ha-Joon Chang

ha-joon cover"Economics for the 99 percent who don’t know moral hazard from opportunity cost: lively, intelligent and readily accessible." --Kirkus

In Economics: The User's Guide, bestselling author and CEPR Senior Research Associate Ha-Joon Chang explains how the global economy works, and why anyone can understand the dismal science. Unlike many economists who claim there is only one way of 'doing economics', he introduces readers to a wide range of economic theories, from classical to Keynesian, revealing how they all have their strengths, weaknesses and blind spots. By ignoring the received wisdom, and exposing the myriad forces that shape our financial fate, Chang provides the tools that every responsible citizen needs to understand - and address - our current economic woes.

Economics: The User's Guide is available in hardcover, audiobook, Kindle, and Kobo.
