Excellent text for public policy classes,
This review is from: The Little Book of Economics: How the Economy Works in the Real World (Little Books. Big Profits) (Hardcover)
The Little Book of Economics is engaging and interesting and written at a level that is perfect for students without much economics background. It gives them a basic understanding of the drivers of the economy and the effects of government policies. As an economist, I'd love to use the IS-LM and aggregate supply and demand framework, but I know from experience that economic models confuse and frighten some Masters in Public Administration [MPA] students. My students can get what they need without the math from Greg's book.
