The economy is always changing, but some things are eternal! Economics for Dummies, 3rd Edition, gives you everything you need to understand our rapidly evolving economy as well as the basics that never change. What's the best way to fight poverty? How can governments boost employment and wage growth? What can be done to protect endangered species and the environment?  

This book answers all of those questions in simple language while tracking with a traditional introductory economics class. Following in the steps of the first and second editions, the thoroughly updated 3rd Edition is a useful study guide and supplement to any high school or college level economics class.  

Discover the ins and outs of irrational consumers. Understand and apply the most powerful tool in economics: the model of supply and demand. Understand the origins and aftermath of financial crises, and more.

Great book with broad overview of economics!

I was at first reluctant to buy an audio book on economics. Nevertheless, the book was engaging and instructive. This book is definitely on my "re-listen" list.

Not an audiobook

Unfortunately although a lot of content, a significant amount needs the referencing of various graphs so not suitable as an audiobook.

does not work for audiobook

The book is good and delivers what it promises. But it was definitely not adapted for an audiobook, making it hard to follow without a PDF in hand
