With clarity, and a deft touch for simplifying a complex topic--in the tradition of the best-selling Innumeracy--Jacob De Rooy explains the basic terms and concepts of economics and proves that the only thing dismal about this science is the way it is usually taught.

Jacob De Rooy, Ph.D., founded the Center for Economic Education at Penn State University's School of Business Administration, where he is on the faculty.From Library Journal:
For those who still wonder at the "fairness" of charging interest for the use of money, the justification is nicely explained here. DeRooy, a director at Pennsylvania State University's School of Business Administration, explains all those economic concepts cited in the media with which readers may not be completely comfortable. He uses a question-and-answer format, loosely arranged in 26 articles, and illustrates many concepts more fully with personal vignettes. Easily read from cover to cover, this book can also be used as a reference tool; the index directs one to various terms that are boldfaced in the text, with summary explanations italicized and related articles indicated with a pointer. Despite the reputation of economics as the "dismal science," DeRooy has written a useful, gently humorous work that won't scare off the number-shy with an overabundance of statistics. Public libraries should welcome this.?Alex Wenner, Indiana Univ. Libs., Bloomington
