This concise and readable book provides non-specialist readers with all the information they need to understand how capitalism works (and how it doesn't). Economics for Everyone, now in its second edition, is an antidote to the abstract and ideological way that economics is normally taught and reported. Key concepts such as finance, competition and wages are explored, and their importance to everyday life is revealed. This book is a must read for those working for a fairer world and for students of the social sciences who want to engage with economics. It is supported by comprehensive web-based course materials for popular economics courses.

A primer on how economics really works (not just the theory in university textbooks). Well researched and accessible, but there is a caveat: it is published by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, a left wing think-tank.
