Economics goes beyond money. It stretches into people’s motivations to act in a certain way and the results of those acts. One way to view economics is that it’s about understanding cause and effect. How will a new government policy change people’s behavior? With what results? Because of that, it gives perspective to a lot of the questions facing us today.
Everyone should have a basic understanding of economics. Politicians, businessmen, and the corporate media would have you believe that economics is too complicated for the average person to understand. And plenty of people are more than happy to perpetuate that myth. But, it’s not true. Here are some great books to get you started. The first two are the best.
