    Description

    A million listeners bought The Undercover Economist to get the lowdown on how economics works on a small scale, in our everyday lives. Since then, economics has become big news. Crises, austerity, riots, bonuses - all are in the headlines all the time. But how does this large-scale economic world really work? What would happen if we cancelled everyone's debt? How do you create a job? Will the BRIC countries take over the world?

    Asking - among many other things - what the future holds for the Euro, why the banks are still paying record bonuses, and where government borrowing will take us, in The Undercover Economist Strikes Back, Tim Harford returns with his trademark clarity and wit to explain what's really going on - and what it means for us all.

    An excellent overview of the complexity of economical policies

    Excellent book, whose content is presented as a dialog between the author and a well intentioned nin-economist who would like to understand how one could improve the life of a nation's citizen through the economy.

    I like how many subject are mentionned and how the complexity of the topic unravel. I also really liked how the author takes time to show how things cannot just be black and white and how hard it can be do determine what is the best economical politic at a given time.

    I strongly recommand.

    useful even for PhD economist

    This is not one of those disgraceful economics textbooks, which present macro theories as some kind of truths or laws of nature. It is quite a comprehensive and coherent review of most important macro topics, which clearly hilights the complexity and uncertainty about how economy works and at the same time helps to form opinion about various macroeconokics issues.
