Book Title: The Armchair Economist

Author: Steven E. Landsberg

Book Description:

This book is a great example of how an understanding of economics can help change one's views of even everyday situations. This book motivated me to think harder about many issues both professionally and personally and to dig deeper into what motivates people. Not only has it helped me understand core principles in my field, it demonstrates just how fun economics and finance can be.
