A sensational book by one of Australia's most respected journalists. Looking from a bottom-up approach from households upwards, it debunks many of the economic propositions of our time through empirical research. The descriptions and examples greatly enrich the readability and highlight the application to contemporary Australia. A highly recommended read. ( )

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.

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.… (more)
