General Description

This small book about economics is a remarkably easy and fun explanation of investment cycles, velocity, business cycles, recessions, inflation, money demand and more. Recommended by former U.S. Treasury Secretary, William Simon. Fascinating and revealing; facts you can't be without; essential for every investor; a fine gift, too.
