If you feel you want to get a decent grasp of free-market economics this book is the perfect place to start. (Daniel Hannan, Telegraph.co.uk/Blog, July 2010). Using illustration, humour and storytelling, the authors take economics off its lofty shelf and place it back on the kitchen table (TheStar.com, September 2010).


Peter D. Schiff is the bestselling author of Crash Proof 2.0: How to Profit from the Economic Collapse and The Little Book of Bull Moves in Bear Markets. This is his first collaboration with his brother Andrew J. Schiff, a recognized expert in economic and financial communications.

This book reflects my views and style more than anything I have read that's not my own. Hence the rating could not have been any different!

Economic theories need to be de-jargonized every now and then to understand the stupidity of some of the things that policymakers do or are recommended to do. Extremely few people, with many experts excluded, tend to understand the basic meaning of some their pet economic solutions or policies. Complex theories effectively lead to equivocation, obfuscation of who bears the real costs (often future generations, or disconnected people) of things that appear like free lunches or financial/economic progress. More often than not gains our of economic decisions come at extreme costs and only jargon-less observance could lead to a discussion of true cost-benefits.This is what the book tries to do for the way at least one type of economic cycle is generated in this book. One may or may not agree with the theories or conclusion, but one is unlikely to walk away without new understandings.

The book, in all its simplicity, is witty and hits home some basic truths not told in economic textbooks these days. Its scope is broad and brush too narrow as a result its simplicity becomes a hindrance. The conclusions are too sweeping and most-tellingly ignore the "time" element. This is a book more for people who want to think about the implications of economic theories on real life, for decision makers in policy but not for most financial market investors.

What can I say, this book was a great read. I got the book today and have already read the whole thing because I just couldn't put it down. The book is very informative and offers an easy to understand analogy about the economic system and flaws in the model and the decision making of our political leaders and economic 'experts'. I found myself amused on a number of occasions when reading this book, as historical figures and current political and economic leaders were parodied with clever fish related names, that reflect the theme of the analogy.


The book first examines the way an economy functions and the basic notions of labour, capital, saving and investing. The book then furthers the analogy with a historical perspective of US economic policy. The book then looks at more current actions of politicians and economists and examines how they are making poor economic decisions and merely building upon the failures of the past. The final part of the book summarises the problems that we are faced with and offers a prediction in the analogy, as to the potential fate of America's economic future.

I am sure many of a Keynesian persuasion will dislike this Austrian theoretical account of the past and current economic problems of the US, however for someone with an open mind, willing to look at things from the perspective of someone who predicted the economic crash, (Peter Schiff), this will be an interesting and informative read.

This book is friendly for the average reader and avoids complicated terminology, making economics interesting to the widest possible audience. I believe the book is well thought out and is actually grounded in solid economic theory and understanding, despite the lack of jargon and complicated language.

This is an essential read for someone who wants to understand more about economic matters because their faith is shaken or non-existent in two-headed one party system. If you are a Tea Party supporter, libertarian, Ron Paul supporter or just in favour of smaller government, this is a must read book. It is also an essential read for anyone who needs educating because of a misplaced faith in Keynesian economics, the federal reserve and big government. Maybe those that will dislike it most will benefit the most from reading it? :p

This is a great book for someone that wants to understand how an economy works. If you have ever read articles where they are mentioning the Federal Reserve and talking about productivity or wealth creation this book explains it in very clear everyday terms in the form of a story. It is very easy to read, lots of cartoon type pictures and the story is interesting. My 13 year old step-son read it and now understands how inflation happens (and what it is) -- hint it isn't prices going up but the value of money going down...

If everyone in America read this book we would have a different set of people in congress for sure. This book makes learning a bit about economics easy and enjoyable. So if you want a quick little lesson on the economy as a whole but don't want to read a dry econ book with lots of formulas this is a very nice way to accomplish that. As I said before the book is appropriate for a wide range of ages and economic experience. I am nearly 50 and have read a number of books on economic topics so I consider myself above average in terms of knowledge of the subject. I very much enjoyed this book and it really helped to solidify my understanding of the big picture. Highly recommended.
