How to Teach Economics to Your Dog: A Quirky Introduction (Hardback)

£12.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Monty is a dog, not a financial genius, but economics still shapes his everyday life.







Over the course of eighteen walks, Dr Rebecca Campbell chews over economic concepts and investigates how they apply to our lives - people and mutts alike. There are no graphs, no charts (Monty can't read them) and definitely no calculus!







How to Teach Economics to Your Dog tackles the knotty question of what economics actually is. Is it a mathematical science like physics? Or a moral and philosophical investigation of how societies should manage scarce resources?







Along the way we meet some of the great thinkers from Adam Smith to Thomas Piketty, and ponder questions such as: What on earth does quantitative easing mean? And why are some countries so much richer than others?
