Description

Need to understand today's economy? This is the book for you. The Cartoon Introduction to Economics, Volume Two: Macroeconomics is the most accessible, intelligible, and humorous introduction to unemployment, inflation, and debt you'll ever read.

Whereas Volume One: Microeconomics dealt with the optimizing individual, Volume Two: Macroeconomics explains the factors that affect the economy of an entire country, and indeed the planet. It explores the two big concerns of macroeconomics: how economies grow and why economies collapse. It illustrates the basics of the labor market and explains what the GDP is and what it measures, as well as the influence of government, trade, and technology on the economy. Along the way, it covers the economics of global poverty, climate change, and the business cycle. In short, if any of these topics have cropped up in a news story and caused you to wish you grasped the underlying basics, buy this book.

The cartoons are funny and closely related to the topic being discussed. Duet Grady Klein and Yoram Bauman, Ph. D is excellent at presenting a complex topic like Macroeconomics into something that is easy for the common person to digest. I chose volume 2 right away with the... See More

assumption that macroeconomics is more interesting and more difficult to understand than microeconomics. Reading this macroeconomics book makes me want to read the first volume book (Microeconomics) as well.
