The Only Economics Book You Will Ever Need.

Economics isn't just about numbers: it's about politics, psychology, history, and so much more. We are all economists - when we work, save for the future, invest, pay taxes, and buy our groceries. Yet many of us feel lost when the subject arises. Award-winning professor Timothy Taylor tackles all the key questions and hot topics of both microeconomics and macroeconomics, including:
* Why do budget deficits matter?
* What exactly does the Federal Reserve do?
* Does globalization take jobs away from American workers?
* Why is health insurance so costly?

The perfect read for fans of Freakonomics, The Undercover Economist and Naked Economics, The Instant Economist offers the knowledge and sophistication to understand the issues - so you can understand and discuss economics on a personal, national, and global level.
