Product Description:

Economics is probably one of the most straightforward concepts to learn, yet often it is difficult to fully comprehend. This book was written not only to explain the complicated concepts, but also to make economics practical. While considered fiction, the scenarios presented in this parable seem to come straight from the front page headlines of the local newspaper. How does the price of an item affect the economy? Or should I ask, how does the economy affect the price of items? Could there be a valid reason for stores to 'price gouge'? Are well-organized protests effective against what is commonly considered corporate greed? Is there really a reason for higher prices in various communities? What is the source of America's high standard of living? ALL of these questions plus many others are answered clearly and carefully in this fictional account of college student Ramon Fernandez. It is rare that a book that I am called upon to write about ends up on my personal bookshelf, but this book has achieved personal library status! Well-written, engaging, and dare I say educational - parents and older students may finally have those "aha" moments as they grapple to understand economics. PB. 200 pgs. ~Deanne
