Daily Telegraph economics editor Edmund Conway introduces and explains the central ideas of economics in a series of 50 clear and concise essays. Beginning with an exploration of the basic theories, such as Adam Smith's 'invisible hand', and concluding with the latest research into the links between wealth and happiness, he sheds light on all the essential topics needed to understand booms and busts, bulls and bears, and the way the world really works. Don't just have it on your desk; get it on your iPod and learn economics the smart way.

"A little knowledge can be a good thing"
I really enjoyed the precise introductions to the many ways that economics relates to life. It made me want to get my children to listen and improve their understanding of the way the world is and the many shades of grey, that good intentions do not always give the best solution. Perhaps , as the author even suggests, it isnt a perfect audiobook, but better suited to being read in small chunks. When listening for an hour or so at a time, the 10 chapters tend to blend a little when follwoing one after another. I am sure a couple more listens will help the pennies to drop.
