Economics for Everyone: A Short Guide to the Economics of Capitalism

by Jim Stanford
£12.99   paperback  Pluto Press (2015)

Economics for Everyone: A Short Guide to the Economics of Capitalism by Jim Stanford Economics is too important to be left to the economists. This concise and readable book provides non-specialist readers with all the information they need to understand how capitalism works (and how it doesn't).
 
Economics for Everyone, now published in second edition, 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 questions such as "Do workers need capitalists?", "Why does capitalism harm the environment?", and "What really happens on the stock market?"
 
The book will appeal to those working for a fairer world, and students of social sciences who need to engage with economics. It is illustrated with humorous and educational cartoons by Tony Biddle, and is supported with a comprehensive set of web-based course materials for popular economics courses.
 
Life-long trade unionist Jim Stanford's guide to the economics of capitalism is back in a lovely new edition. Described glowingly by Naomi Klein as 'a book with the power to change the world', Economics for Everyone offers an antidote to the usually abstract field of economics, in which key concepts such as finance, competition and wages are explored, and their importance to everyday life is kept in the foreground.
