A Pedestrian's Guide to the Economy
by Orley Amos
Publisher: AmosWEB 2008
Most books on the economy are written by economists for economists. As a handy reference source, this text provides answers to many of the most asked, a few of the least asked, and some of the never asked questions about the economy. The author begins with seven fundamental features of the economy that you probably know, but then again, may not. Because it gives you a working start into the economy, this journey is best taken before moving on to the more detailed topics in section II.

by Gene Callahan - Ludwig von Mises Institute
Fascinating guide to the main ideas of economics, written for the non-economist. Callahan shows that good economics isn't about government planning or statistical models. It's about human beings and the choices they make in the real world.
This text is designed to provide you with a very comprehensive and easy-to-understand introduction to economics. This text will assume no background in economics. All you really need is an open mind and an interest in learning.
by Carl Menger - Ludwig von Mises Institute
It is said that this book is the best introduction to economic logic ever written. Carl Menger elucidated the precise nature of economic value, and rooted economics firmly in the real-world actions of individual human beings.
by Bettina Bien Greaves - Foundation for Economic Education
The book should help teachers of high school economics explain economic principles in the classroom. It contains many suggestions for explaining economics to younger students, as well as material to challenge older students and even adult readers.
