This non-technical introduction to economics is designed specifically to help non-professionals understand the economic setting in which they will play out their lives. It emphasizes the operation of the economy as a system, so that contemporary problems are examined in the broader context of the system that gives rise to them -- increasingly a market-oriented system for many nations.
