Economics Through Everyday Life presents a brief education in economics to regular people using terms and examples that are easy to understand. It strives to be non-partisan and there are certainly chapters that will annoy conservatives and other chapters that will annoy liberals. It covers topics such as the 2007-08 collapse (and the many things that contributed), Social Security, marijuana, and healthcare (and why the answers to solve those problems aren’t so easy and all options have pluses and minuses). You wouldn’t think a book on this topic could be fascinating, but it most definitely is. It took me a lot longer to read than it should have because I kept stopping to read bits to my husband and to discuss what the book said with him. Economics Through Everyday Life is a must-read for everyone.
