Economics: A Very Short Introduction - Partha DasGupta

Though economics may not have a reputation as a riveting subject, this book defies the stereotype. The Very Short Introductions always attract experts who are able to explain their subjects clearly, concisely, and engagingly. Partha Dagupta splits the discussion into two perspectives, Becky’s and Desta’s – the former a middle class American and the latter the daughter of an Ethiopian farmer – and explores economic theories in these very different worlds. He brings in considerations that you rarely find in economics books: environmental, humanitarian, evolutionary. If you know nothing about economics, read this book. It will introduce basic concepts and explain their real-world significance. If you know a lot about economics, read this book. It will provide a framework for your knowledge and make you look at concepts in a new way. Go ahead, be a know-it-all.
