  • How different economic systems function
  • The boom and bust cycle of market economies
  • The impact of emerging markets
  • How price, supply and demand interact

About the Author:

Tony Cleaver is Senior Teaching Fellow in Economics at the University of Durham, UK


"As part of the Routledge series 'The Basics,' Cleaver (Univ. of Durham, UK) has updated his 2004 edition to include an engaging, informative first chapter on the recent worldwide financial crisis... Lucid writing and an international perspective differentiate this book from similar surveys such as Economics for the Rest of Us by Moshe Adler (CH, Jun'10, 47-5754), Naked Economics by Charles Wheelan (CH, Oct'10, 48-1001), and The Little Book of Economics by Greg Ip (CH, Apr'11, 48-4591). Recommended." -- M. H. Maier, Glendale Community College. (CHOICE August 2011)
