"An excellent introduction to some of the main ideas in modern
economics. It is clearly written, balanced and, above all,
reliable, with nothing to unlearn should it inspire someone to
study the subject further." -- Roger Backhouse - Professor of the
History and Philosophy of Economics, University of Birmingham
"I hope that people read this book. It should change the way that people who are new to economics think about complex issues which affect the world we live in." -- Timothy Besley, Professor of Economics and Political Science, London School of Economics
