Economics for Libe

Economics for Life

[cc_third_col]These books are not intended to train students to become economists, but to empower them by learning to use economic concepts in their daily lives to make smart choices — as consumers, business people, citizens. That’s why we called the books Economics for Life.

Economics for Life has same rigour standards as:

  • Economist Magazine
  • New York Times
  • Wall St. Journal
  • Globe & Mail

None use abstract graphs or equations, yet present sophisticated economic analysis.

If Stephen Hawking can explain theoretical physics in A Brief History of Time with only one equation, the same can be done for economics. [/cc_third_col]

[cc_third_col]What the Reviewers said…

“I strongly believe that the authors have been successful in achieving a balance between presenting some complicated theoretical concepts in a manner that is not intimidating and not compromising on the complexities and intricacies that some of these theories have.”

“The writing style is very engaging and the examples used will really relate well with younger students. The level of discussion is appropriate for a university level course.  I will use many of the explanations to highlight the theory in my university classes.  They are that good.” [/cc_third_col] [cc_third_col_right] “I am a proponent of teaching students what is essential in economics; practical explanations of events occurring around them and the impact on their lives. College students are not going to become economists so why should we attempt to fill their heads with formulae and graphs? Many students gravitate to studies that don’t include math. They’re terrified of it.
My Journalism students are a prime example. They always list economics as their least favourite course and year after year …. I think this is a novel approach, a long overdue example of what students really need to know.”[/cc_third_col_right]
