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.
