About the Book

If you think economics is boring, then maybe you've been learning about it in the wrong places. The humorous, informal style of Slackernomics makes it easy to learn a wealth of information that you will find useful in business, politics, or regular daily life. From the basics of economics to current political controversies, Slackernomics cuts through the dull, boring economic arguments you're used to hearing, and presents them in a lively, interesting fashion.

If you want to know about the basics of investing, or trade, or how the government uses-and misuses-your money, Slackernomics will give you the basics. Slackernomics is a must-have book for anyone who wants to know how the economy works, but who doesn't want to be bored to tears while learning it.

Slackernomics uses witty, fun-sometimes outrageous-examples to help you learn the basics of economics, and maybe get a few good laughs while doing it. By the time you're finished, you'll be able to speak about the economy as knowledgeably as any real economist.

And you'll be just as wrong as they are.
