This is not only a great book to read for someone wanting to learn a little bit about the basics of economic theory, but a trenchant critique of modern-day policymaking and the fallacies riddling our political debate.

Heath devotes the two halves of the book to the most commonly-heard economic arguments on the right and left, and picks them apart to equal devastating effect. Being sympathetic to the left, his basic goal is to deepen the policy-making debate by showing why economists' arguments aren't all they're made out to be, and why the arguments advanced on the left are often completely off-target.

Lucidly-written and funny throughout, Joseph Heath shows why we need people like him to study critical thinking and philosophy in university. Read this book.
