Abstract: Stanford's book is a primer on capitalist economics-how it works and how it doesn't. In a very readable style, and cartoons by Tony Biddle he explains concepts such as finance, how the worker fits into the big economic picture and how to make the system fairer. It is free of technical jargon and mathematics. As such it is completely accessible to the average person. By the end of the book readers will understand the basic features and relationships of modern day capitalism. Included is a list of web resources-course outlines, lecture notes, student exercises and a glossary of terms.
