Economics 101

I’m currently reading the book “How an Economy Grows and Why it Crashes” by Peter D. Schiff and Andrew J. Schiff.  These two brothers had a father who taught them about economics in the form of stories, when they were small.  It was easy for them to comprehend and they were able to learn much from their father.
For someone like me, who has never had any kind of real understanding of economics, and has thought it was interesting but much to confusing or large of a subject to grasp, THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU!  I started it yesterday and am almost halfway through it.  It is easy reading and the concepts of economics are made simple.  It is filled with little pictures all the way through and is really a fun read. 

This book may be for you if you’ve ever wondered:

  • Why governments can spend without ever seeming to run out of money?
  • Why some countries are rich while others are poor?
  • Whether spending or saving is the best cure for a bad economy?
  • Where inflation comes from?

(The above were taken from the back of the book)

Anyhow, I’m learning so much from this book and it’s such a quick
read that it’s definitely worth it.  I hope some of you decide to read
it to. 

Anyone have any other books they would recommend on this subject for a beginner who just wants more understanding?

Please click HERE for a fun trailer of the book. It’s only a minute long.
