"Homer Economicus quenches your thirst for learning like a Duff beer. The reader, through the lens of The Simpsons, will learn more about economics is a few hours than any textbook can possibly teach. My advice is that you kick back, put your feet up at your desk and enjoy a donut or two while you read this fascinating collection. Mmm."G. Dirk Mateer, Senior Lecturer, University of Kentucky
"Homer Economicus in action! The Simpsons is an excellent window onto the world of economics, and this book shows you how and why."Tyler Cowen, George Mason University, blogger at The Marginal Revolution, and author of Discover Your Inner Economist
