Professor Steven E. Rhoads didn’t start out as an economist, and that may be why, in 1985, he was able to write an economics book for noneconomists that went on to become a bestseller. In this update, his now-classic text retains its readable style in presenting clear and thought-provoking examples of economic principles applied to real-life issues. Rhoads offers a full-throated endorsement of the role of economists in political decision making, but his tone is neither partisan nor ideological – except in defense of free markets.
