Asked to recommend "just one book" that would impart a working understanding of economics to a general reader, author Timothy Taylor sat down and wrote one.
Defining terms, framing issues with vivid examples, pointing out complexities to undermine simplistic notions, and modeling how economists think, 18 plainspoken, brief, sharply focused chapters address main topics in microeconomics (e.g., division of labor, supply and demand, and elasticity), and 20 more chapters address topics in macroeconomics (e.g., gross domestic product, balance of trade, and money and banking).
