    “I recommend this book to anyone who wants to gain an understanding of basic economics with little pain and much pleasure.” —Gary Becker, 1992 Nobel Prize winner in Economics

    This revised and updated edition adds commentary on hot topics, including the current economic crisis, globalization, the economics of information, the intersection of economics and politics, and the history—and future—of the Federal Reserve.
