BookSense on ‘The Undercover Economist’
The Undercover Economist takes you from your immediate surroundings: bookstore cafe, drinking (overpriced?) coffee and looking at this hardcover (why not paperback?) book, and explains from there how quirks and failures of the market can cause your latte to cost four dollars and global problems like poverty and starvation. This is a very entertaining and enlightening book about our world from an economic perspective.
