Overview


The fourth edition of Basic Economics is both expanded and updated. A new chapter on the history of economics itself has been added, and the implications of that history examined. A new section on the special role of corporations in the economy has been added to the chapter on government and big business, among other additions throughout the book.

Basic Economics, which has now been translated into six languages, has grown so much that a large amount of material in the back of the book in previous editions has now been put online instead, so the book itself and its price will not have to expand. The central idea of Basic Economics, however, remains the same: that the fundamental facts and principles of economics do not require jargon, graphs, or equations, and can be learned in a relaxed and even enjoyable way.

It is understandable that books written about "Economics" don't make most reader's "book of the month club" choice, but Prof. Sowell's text book is the easiest to read and understand out of all the books on economics that I've read. And I've read Hazlitt, Mises, Friedman and F.A Hayek.

The author makes this subject easy to understand and examples used are real world, applicable examples.

"An Overview of Fallacies, Fantasies, and Contrasting Realities in Today's Political Economy" would be a more informative title, in my personal opinion. It is not a textbook for the naive freshman trying to make the transcript look more impressive, but a work for the conscientious citizen trying to understand and contribute to improving the economic underpinnings of our nation.

A complete and concise explanation of economics that is easy to read and understand. This book cuts through all of the spin and explains economics in a common sense way using real information and experiences.
