Learn about the earliest ideas in economics, such as property rights and the function of money, and progress to present-day economic thought, from explanations on economic bubbles to the relationship between economics and the environment.

The Economics Book includes:

- More than 100 key ideas and principles in economic thought, from antiquity to present day

- Brief biographies and context boxes to give the full historical context of each idea

- A reference section with a glossary of economic terms and a directory of economic thinkers
