I just finished reading Economix: How Our Economy Works (and Doesn’t Work), in Words and Pictures and absolutely loved it. Yeah, yeah, it’s a comic book (oh, sorry, “graphic novel”) but it’s a fantastic way to learn about the history of economics. Whether you have a kid whom you’d like to learn about this stuff, or if you’d like to learn more yourself (in a fun way), I highly recommend it. It’s sort of what my own Panic Prosperity and Progress would be like if I could manage to draw well!
