Economix: How Our Economy Works (and Doesn't Work)

by Michael Goodwin

Economix : how our economy works (and doesn't work) in words and pictures

Economix is a comic that explains the big picture (mostly in Europe and U.S.) how the economy works, the downfalls, principles, and its impacts on society. Instead of starting from the principles and building onto the foundation, the book starts with history and examines how it affects the economy in present day.

I find Economix an intuitive read and easy to digest because the visuals has funky caricatures such as the companies being represented as giant robots. It's also pretty entertaining and informative because I learned about things like free market, socialism, and marxism.

I would recommend the book if you are interested in learning about the economy. It can really give you the understanding you need to dive deeper to other topics that might not be mentioned in the book.
