A LITTLE HISTORY OF ECONOMICS

A LITTLE HISTORY OF ECONOMICS

By Niall Kishtainy. What causes poverty? Are economic crises inevitable under capitalism? Is government intervention in the economy a helpful approach or a disastrous idea? The answers to such basic questions matter to everyone, yet the unfamiliar jargon and math of economics can make them seem daunting. This clear, accessible, and even humorous book is ideal for young readers new to economics as well as for all who seek a better understanding of the full sweep of economic history. Organized into short, chronological chapters that center on big ideas and events, the book recounts the contributions of key thinkers such as Smith, Ricardo, Marx, and Keynes while examining topics ranging from the invention of money and the rise of agrarianism to the Great Depression, entrepreneurship, inequality, and behavioral economics. Grades 9 and up. Index. Yale University Press. 249 pages. ©2017.
