The Best Book on the Market

Buy now on Amazon

Markets are all around us. But how many people understand how they really work? In clear, non-technical language and using real examples from everyday life, The Best Book on the Market explains the reality of markets – which is very far from the rarified models that exist on the pages of the economics textbooks.

Why do governments’ attempts to ‘improve’ the workings of the market actually tend to make things worse? Why are black markets not a black as they are painted? How does the price mechanism work to reveal and repair shortages? Why are free markets the most efficient of all economic systems – and the most moral? Can markets solve pollution? And how can we best create wealth among the world’s poorest? The Best Book on the Market has the answers.
