Publisher Description

New York Times–Bestseller: An “engrossing” history of economics, from an author with “excellent storytelling skills” and an Eisner Award-winning artist (Boing Boing).

Stimulus plans: good or bad? Free markets: How free are they? Jobs: Can we afford them? Capitalism, socialism, and communism: What’s the difference? Corporations: Are they people?

For those who want to better understand what Wall Street and Washington know (or say they know), this graphic history, with clear, witty writing and quirky, entertaining art, transforms “the dismal science” of economics into a fun, fact-filled story about human nature and our attempts to make the most of what we’ve got.

“Quite accessible . . . Goodwin brilliantly contextualizes economic theories with historical narrative, while Burr’s simple but elegant illustration employs classical techniques like caricaturing politicians and symbolizing big businesses (as a gleeful factory) to help the reader visualize difficult concepts.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“You could read ten books on the subject and not glean as much education.” —David Bach, #1 New York Times–bestselling author of The Automatic Millionaire

“I just cannot stress enough how amazing this book is!”—Wired
