“The major concepts of macroeconomics are broken down with wit, verve, and clarity in this excellent follow-up to The Cartoon Introduction to Economics: Vol. 1: Microeconomics . . . This clever, lucid, and lighthearted book is a godsend to anyone who needs a simple but complete primer on the ins and outs of economics.” ―Publishers Weekly
“People don't usually chuckle over unemployment, inflation, and recessions. But they'll get plenty of laughs out of this book--and a good introduction to macro too.” ―Eric Maskin, Nobel Laureate in Economics
“If you don't want to cry about the state of the economy, why not laugh instead? This book is an ideal introduction to macroeconomics for anybody who thinks they ought to understand what's happening around them but is put off by dense text and economics jargon.” ―Diane Coyle, author of The Economics of Enough
“Bauman [has] an insightful philosophical bent and the natural inclinations of an educator, in the best sense of that term.” ―MarginalRevolution.com
