Economics is too important to be left to the economists, argues Jim Stanford, and this concise and readable book provides nonspecialists with all the information they need to understand how capitalism works (and how it doesn’t).
            Now in its second edition, Economics for Everyone is an antidote to the abstract and ideological way that economics is normally taught and reported. Key concepts such as finance, competition, and wages are explored, and their importance to everyday life is revealed. Stanford answers such questions as “Do workers need capitalists,” “Why does capitalism harm the environment,” and “What really happens on the stock market.”
            Illustrated with humorous and educational cartoons by Tony Biddle, and supported with a comprehensive set of web-based course materials for popular economics courses, this book will appeal to students of social sciences who need to engage with economics as well as anyone seeking to better understand today’s economy.

About the Author:

Jim Stanford is economist for Unifor, Canada’s largest private-sector trade union and an economics columnist for the Globe and Mail.

Review:

“Stanford is that rare breed: the teacher who changed your life. He has written a book―both pragmatic and idealistic―with the power to change the world.” (Naomi Klein, author of This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate and No Logo.)

"Is economics the 'dismal science'? Not in Jim Stanford's capable hands. If we are to have better economic policies in the future, 'everyone' needs a guide, and this one is short but sweet." (Lars Osberg, Dalhousie University)

"Jim Stanford has provided a highly readable yet rigorous guide to the economics of capitalism. It is to be commended for its comprehensive yet critical coverage--from work to globalization, from the environment to high finance." (Malcolm Sawyer, University of Leeds)

"Jim Stanford has written a wonderfully accessible and useful book for union activists or anyone else who wants to learn about how the economy works in order to change it." (Thea Lee, deputy chief of staff, AFL-CIO)
