This book is extremely well written and elucidating with regard to the influencers on today's economists and financial policy. From Paine and Malthus to Keynes and Friedman, the myriad reasons for economic tinkering (or not), profit maximization and production optimization is covered in a easy to understand and compelling manner. Objective, comprehensive (to 2007) and relevant - this book is a must for micro-economic theorists and students.
