Turns out it is irrelevant how much you already know about economics, even well known concepts are explained with always entertaining and occasionally even amusing examples. I never thought about the reason behind the random sales at my local supermarket, and now I know - but I won't tell you, so you won't skip over on a great chapter.
In the second half it gets a bit less entertaining but more substantial, when Harford shatters a couple of popular myths about the dangers of globalization, exploiting multinationals and the reasons for poor nations to become even poorer.
