Although there are numerous texts available on the captioned title that covers the entire economics concepts in typical economics jargon, the book under consideration is an exception. Economics: The Basics provides holistic overview as well as leads all key concepts through lucid explanation of basics of economics that all readers, including interested laymen, can grasp them and make them use in day-to-day life matters.
It incorporates real economics issues and the most recent ones. Though the author sometimes makes the key concepts too concise, it is however hard to neglect the importance of his unique understanding of boom and bust cycles, sustainable development, public policy and international trade. As far as my reading of this text goes, the theoretical understanding of Tony Cleaver's is a mixture of new classical economics and Keynesianism.
He makes his case clear in discussion of economics theories where he, intently or otherwise, emphasizes demand-side Keynesian style of economics. It is not to say that taking unique a tilted understanding of economics is bad, but giving text book readers an impression of theoretical dominance is not desired. Additionally, like all textbooks of modern schools, Economics: The Basics rarely includes leftist theoretical frameworks.
Again it is of no use to add greater emphasis on this leftist ideology, however, it is always good to give a basic understanding of all schools of thoughts. For me, the book is a fine read. Dec 30, Alejandro Shirvani rated it really liked it.
This has a bit more to it than the usual economics for non-economists book: it goes in to more detail and although aimed at beginners it covers university level concepts albeit in a non-mathematical, theoretical way.
Possibly for the novice some parts may move quickly but this would be an excellent companion for the A-level student interested in getting on top of the concepts before going to uni or as a refresher for someone that has already studied the subject.
There's a good description of the This has a bit more to it than the usual economics for non-economists book: it goes in to more detail and although aimed at beginners it covers university level concepts albeit in a non-mathematical, theoretical way. There's a good description of the difference between Keynesian and classical approaches to macroeconomics here. Oct 30, Michelle Tran rated it liked it Shelves: business.
This book was a good introduction to economics for those who don't know much about the field already like me. However, even then, the subject matter seems to be glossed over.
Otherwise, Cleaver provided very good insight on the relevance of economic policies to current news-worthy events eg. Nov 16, Andrea Aramu rated it it was ok Shelves: business. It's OK to revise concepts already studied. However it is difficult to understand if you are new to the subject. Petr Z rated it really liked it Feb 01, Feb 21, Gareth Jones rated it liked it.
