Economics Book Reviews Articles
Everyone thought that economics books had to be boring until Thomas Friedman hit the bestseller list with The World Is Flat. Then everyone thought the next book club pick had to be an economics text as well. The seesawing has died down, thank goodness, but we are left with the question of how to pick a good book on economics and not feel like we’ve dined on sawdust by the end of the first chapter. The answer is to look to ordinary readers who’ve read the book and reviewed it. You can find their descriptions and opinions about current and classic books on economics and finance in our article database. Book reviews on all subjects are collected here. Macroeconomics and microeconomics textbooks, books on international finance and trade, even basic introductions for youth have been reviewed by business students and professors as well as non-experts. Research before buying — that’s your contribution to intelligent economic policy!
