Summary
Thoroughly revised and statistically updated, Economics Explained is an engaging primer that combines the wealth of information of a textbook with a readability rarely found in textbooks - in one interesting and informative volume. In this straightforward, highly accessible reference, Robert Heilbroner and Lester Thurow - two of America's most respected and articulate economists - illuminate the vital concerns, trends, and challenges of the marketplace: the threat of inflation, the unleashing of technology, the illusion of money, the thrust of big business, the cost of monopoly. Here is all the economics essential for becoming an effective investor, a savvy business decision maker, or simply an informed member of society
