Books/online Economics Tutorials Etc

Recommended Posts

I enjoy reading threads exploring the economics of house prices, but I must admit I skip most of it and try to extract the gist. I feel a bit like Eddie, Marty Crane's dog in Frasier who, when listening to Frasier and Marty argue about him heard only "yada yada yada EDDIE yada yada yada". Are there any books or online resources anyone could recommend for an economics numpty to try to get his head around an endeavour that appears to me to be a bit like trying to catch clouds? :unsure:

There are some excellent courses online AND FOR FREE from Peter Navarro, a Havard Professor who has a little more shaky advice on the markets with his website www.peternavarro.com which are in powerpoint and mp3 form.

He covers both macro-economics and microeconomics in engaging lessions, and is one of the best courses I have heard.

For a good introductory book, try 'Economics for Dummies'. It's avaliable over at Amazon for around £12 I think, informative and easy to read.

Also, "The Worldly Philosophers" by Robert Heilbroner writes about the life and times of the economists, so you can understand the context in which they developed their theories.
