Bauman, Yoram

duction to Economics

Volume 1: Microeconomics

€ 19.95

The award-winning illustrator Grady Klein has paired up with the world's only stand-up economist, Yoram Bauman, to take the dismal out of the dismal science. From the optimizing individual to game theory to price theory, "The Cartoon Introduction to Economics "is the most digestible, explicable, and humorous 208-page introduction to microeconomics you'll ever read. From comedy clubs in Boston, New York City, D.C., San Francisco, and Seattle to universities in the United States, Canada, and England to numerous professional associations, Bauman has disproved before capacity crowds that economics is by definition dull. (His "Principles of Economics, Translated" is a YouTube cult classic among economists.) The solution isn't just about putting comics back in economics. As Google's chief economist, Hal Varian, wrote, "You don't need a brand new economics (to understand the information-based economy). You just need to see the really cool stuff, the material they didn't get to when you studied economics." "The Carto on Introduction to Economics" is all about explaining the really cool stuff, all the insights of game theory made over the last fifty years. Of course, the award-winning illustrator and lauded graphic novelist Grady Klein makes sure that comics is in fact put back into economics--which is critical, because "The Cartoon Introduction to Economics" walks you through an entire introductory microeconomics course that still, alas, includes some of that less-than-cool stuff. But the collaborative genius of the Klein-Bauman team makes even decision trees, taxes, and margins not only explicable but fun.
