Ross Gittins is the economics guru of Australia. He has the extremely rare and enviable knack of making economics relevant, accessible and, most importantly of all, interesting. And Ross is a man on a mission. He wants to help us to understand just how the economy around us works, and more importantly, to help us 'maximise our utility' - as economists would say - that is, to take control of our lives, do less of what doesn't satisfy us and more of what does. Ross Gittins wants to explain to us: be it to do with work, leisure and the shortage of time; homes and housework; buying and saving; parents and their kids; kids and their education; not to mention our happiness and the things that may threaten it - crime, taxation, health and ageing. Economics is the stuff of life, our life, and we need to understand it. Written in his trademark friendly and accessible style.
