Free Lunch: Easily Digestible Economics
The economy has never been so relevant to so many people as it is now, and it's vital that we understand how it affects our lives. 'There's no such thing as a free lunch' is the one phrase everyone has heard from economics - not even for bankers. But why not? What does economics tell us about the price of lunch - and everything else?
Free Lunch makes the economics pages of the newspaper intelligible and addresses the concerns that worry us all. It will enable you to understand - and challenge - the claims made by politicians Set out like a good lunch-time conversation, the book will guide you through the mysteries of the economy. Your guides will be some of the greatest names in the field, including Smith, Marx and Keynes. This clever and witty introduction to economics costs less than even the cheapest meal. It is essential reading in these times of economic uncertainty, and is far more satisfying than even the most gourmet banquet.

Review: Free Lunch. Easily Digestible EconomicsUser Review - William Orr - Goodreads
Pretty good intro to economic thinking, including easy economic history (or rather, history of economic thought). Mostly from a British standpoint, and just touches on the recent crisis, given the publication date. Read full review
