A million listeners bought The Undercover Economist to get the lowdown on how economics works on a small scale, in our everyday lives. Since then, economics has become big news. Crises, austerity, riots, bonuses - all are in the headlines all the time. But how does this large-scale economic world really work? What would happen if we cancelled everyone's debt? How do you create a job? Will the BRIC countries take over the world?

Would you consider the audio edition of The Undercover Economist Strikes Back to be better than the print version?

This works as audio book with the back and forth between two narrators. It is difficult to see how this could have the same impact in printed format.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Undercover Economist Strikes Back?

Digging for chocolate, how does this relate to a modern economy. In fact what really is money, how much is it worth, and what is the impact on your life - so what has chocolate got to do with it all - Tim Harford spills the coins.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The story of a small island that used stones for currency, and a stone of about 2ft wide was about the price of a pig. So what happens when it is too big to move the stone, you trade notes as to where you left your stones. Sounds absurd right? But that's what we do now....!

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Left confused, bewildered, mind blown by the complex web of interactions and implications.

Any additional comments?

I generally choose books by what I can learn to apply in life somewhere, the insights. Whilst it may be about macro economics, you can definitely learn to cut through the chaff and rhetoric that is in the media each and every day and used by those who manage our governments.
