What to expect

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Economics: The User’s Guide, A Pelican Book, by Ha-Joon Chang, read by Jonathan Keeble.

What is economics?
How does the global economy work?
What do different economic theories tell us about the world?

In Economics: The User’s Guide, bestselling author Ha-Joon Chang explains how the global economy works, and why anyone can understand the dismal science. Unlike many economists who claim there is only one way of ‘doing economics’, he introduces readers to a wide range of economic theories, from classical to Keynesian, revealing how they all have their strengths, weaknesses and blind spots. By ignoring the received wisdom, and exposing the myriad forces that shape our financial fate, Chang provides the tools that every responsible citizen needs to understand – and address – our current economic woes.
