Reviews for How an Economy Grows and Why It Crashes
Good, easy, fun, factual read
I?ve completed reading this book and I can say that I have learned a lot better about the economy from it than from an economic textbook. The authors, Peter D Schiff & Andrew J Schiff, show you how an economy grows (from scratch) to how it prospers and how it suffers. I especially like that he uses fish to represent money in his story telltale; money a concept that is easily manipulated. The story, presented using illustrations in a humorous and sometimes satirical manner, relates much to how our present economy is being managed. The book is such an easy read that a primary school kid can begin to enjoy such subject like economics, while the grown ups can get a truer understanding of economics. He explains how some economist and ?experts? have their fundamental understanding backwards and make it seem so complex that the average joe would be easily duped. Heard of fishflation (inflation) before? If not, read this book. ;) by Roger Tan
