Revue de presse

Learning economics should be fun. Klein and Bauman make sure that it is. --N. Gregory Mankiw, Professor of Economics, Harvard University, and author of Principles of Economics. Hilarity and economics are not often found together, but this book has a lot of both. It also does a great job of explaining important economic concepts simply, accurately, and entertainingly--quite a feat. --Eric Maskin, Nobel Laureate in Economics Bauman and Klein present solid basic economics in a brilliant cartoon wrapper. The authors successfully shine a happy light on the dismal science. --Hugo Sonnenschein, Distinguished Service Professor and President Emeritus, University of Chicago This is a seriously funny book! Klein and Bauman offer an enlightening and entertaining look at why our day-to-day choices matter and how they all combine. Students will find this a great addition to their textbooks, and critics of the discipline will learn what economics is really about. --Diane Coyle, author of The Soulful Science Had Art Spiegelman and John Maynard Keynes collaborated on a comic book on economics, they could only have dreamed of coming up with something this good. --Jonathan A. Shayne, a.k.a. Merle Hazard, country singer and founder of Shayne & Co., LLC Klein's preferences for relatively thick lines and bare-bones perspective . . . [conjures] the work of the marvelous New Yorker cartoonist Lou Myers . . . Probably the least dismal treatment of the dismal science ever. --Booklist For anybody who is genuinely interested in economics, who really wants to learn the jargon, or anyone who is starting out studying an economics course, this is just a brilliant source. Tim Harford, author of Adapt --Various

Présentation de l'éditeur

Bauman has put the comedy into economy at comedy clubs and universities around the country and around the world (his Principles of Economics, Translated is a YouTube cult classic). As an educator at both the university and high school levels, he has learned how to make economics relevant to today's world and today's students. As Google's chief economist, Hal Varian, wrote, You don't need a brand-new economics. You just need to see the really cool stuff, the material they didn't get to when you studied economics. The Cartoon Introduction to Economics is all about integrating the really cool stuff into an overview of the entire discipline of microeconomics, from decision trees to game trees to taxes and thinking at the margin. Rendering the cool stuff fun is the artistry of the illustrator and lauded graphic novelist Klein. Panel by panel, page by page, he puts comics into economics. So if the vertiginous economy or a dour professor's 600-page econ textbook has you desperate for a fun, factual guide to economics, reach for The Cartoon Introduction to Economics and let the collaborative genius of the Klein-Bauman team walk you through an entire introductory microeconomics course.

HASH(0x9e8305ac) étoiles sur 5 Engaging coverage of the not-so-dismal science 25 janvier 2010
Par R - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I just finished this book and was surprised by how naturally Bauman and Grady link various topics together with a balance of serious focus and light humor.

Once I started, I found it hard to put down, since each chapter leads comfortably into the next, as if it were woven into a single, coherent story. At surprisingly frequent intervals, Bauman and Grady decorate the discussion with humorous comments about economics and economists which also tends to keep reading fun, even when discussing serious topics.

Another interesting feature is the way the book boils down the work of recent Nobel laureates in economics: the book visually demonstrates the idea. You'll soon find yourself comfortable with the new "big ideas" of economics in ways that allow you to see the world with additional insights (not to mention being able to discuss adverse selection in casual conversation with your friends...).

A final feature I found useful was a visual glossary that explains key concepts and echo the visual treatment of the concept in the book. Throughout the glossary are images that convey the meaning of economic concepts. If you're a visual learner, you will really enjoy this book.

For those who want to make sure that serious economics concepts are truly covered in this book, I've included a short list below. The book is organized into 3 main sections:

- The Optimizing Individual (one person)
This section covers decision trees, the time value of money and it's use in decision making, decision making under risk (diversification, expected value, adverse selection, etc), and trade (efficient market hypothesis, Coase Theorem, etc).

- Strategic Interactions (one person to some people)
This section covers cake cutting, Pareto efficiency, simultaneous-move games, auctions, and larger markets (competition and monopolies).

- Market Interactions (some people to many people)
This section covers supply and demand, taxes, margins, elasticity, competitive markets and externalities.

The table of contents I've listed above doesn't adequately convey the manner in which the content is covered. For example, imagine pirates discussing "maarrhginal analysis" or two siblings working on cake cutting. The topics are surprisingly full of opportunities for humor.

Bauman and Grady have found a way to make learning economics easy and fun.

HASH(0x9d440f90) étoiles sur 5 Considered Awesome by Australians! 8 avril 2010

This book is amazing and hilarious! I first came across Yoram Bauman on […]
and I have visited his blog regularly ever since. I pre-ordered the book because I knew from seeing his stand-up that it would not dissappoint and it's hasn't.
I'm a Economics undergraduate student in Sydney Australia. The content in this book summarises the basic information I learnt in my first year at university but, it's done in a really smart, easy to understand and funny way.
I recommend this book to who ever enjoys economic theory or any parent who has a child who is struggling with micro-economic theory.

I can't wait for Volume 2!!!!

I preordered my copy, and was happy to find out that Amazon had shipped it early enough so that it would arrive at my home on the release date.

I have quite enjoyed reading it, and if you're looking for an easy-to-digest introduction to the topic, this might be the book for you. One thing that makes it a nice introduction is that

Yoram Bauman is definitely a funny guy: search for "stand up economist" on youtube, or enjoy this presentation where he translates the 10 Principles of Economics into layman's terminology. If you like this presentation you will like the book.

HASH(0x9ddc7f30) étoiles sur 5 Easy & fun introduction to economics! 6 janvier 2011
Par HAYLEY HUMMERSTON - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I teach high school economics so I bought this as a resource to help my students grasp some of the concepts involved in the subject. I loved reading the book & will definitely use some extracts in class. My only beef is that the terminology isn't always what we use in Australia, & particularly in the NSW syllabus. But this can't be helped & is a small price to pay for a truly original, amusing & engaging book which does indeed make economics more accessible.

HASH(0x9bcc5510) étoiles sur 5 Engaging and Educational Book for All Audiences 12 février 2010
Par Hans de Grys - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Cartoon Introduction to Economics. The fundamental ideas in Microeconomics are presented in a clear and intelligent manner, with many humorous but thoughtful examples and analogies. The organization of the book is clean and logical, moving from the "optimizing individual" to "strategic interactions" of small groups to "market interactions" involving many people. A wide variety of topics are distilled down to their essence (decision trees, risk, pareto efficiency, auctions, trade, supply and demand, taxes, elasticity, etc.). Klein's whimsical and funny illustrations add a great deal to the text, and hold the reader's interest while at the same time helping to explain the various concepts and examples. This book is appropriate for many different ages and backgrounds, from high school or college students studying econ to the average adult seeking a little more knowledge and understanding of basic economic principles. I've read parts of it several times, and find that I get a deeper understanding of some of the more complicated and nuanced concepts the second time through. My one (minor) complaint is that this otherwise quick read bogs down a bit in some of the later chapters (e.g. margins and elasticity) with too much theory (and not enough jokes?). But this is a minor issue, and on the whole I enthusiastically recommend this book for both econ students and for people who just want to learn more about the topic (and have fun doing it).
