Rather than simply criticizing this situation, I have taken steps to help rectify it. Coming out soon is my new book \”Understanding Economics.\” Its subtitle is \”Economics for non-economists,\” and its aim is to introduce those who have not studied economics professionally to an understanding of its essentials. I have tried to do this without jargon or equations, yet in what I hope is a fluid and non-patronizing way.
Among the first copies to be sent out, one will go to a foundation which uses the word economics in its title, but nowhere in its thinking, and one will go to a retired accountant who is paid to write about economics yet quite obviously knows nothing at all about it. Others will go to journalists who report their output uncritically.
I think we can guess who those two copies are going to. Now we just await their reviews, yes?
