Summary

Everyday Economics eschews the usual top-down approach of economics, which sees economies as simply agglomerations of the activities of millions of people, and instead explores the role played by the individual in the economy. In so doing, the book illuminates the economic landscape in a much more engaging and accessible way.

Everyday Economics Summary

Everyday Economics by Steve Coulter (London School of Economics)

Much of economics is a top-down analysis that simplifies and reduces the huge varieties between individuals to a predictable range of characteristics that lend themselves to systematic analysis. This book eschews this conventional perspective, which sees national economies as simply agglomerations of the activities of millions of people, and instead explores the role played by the individual in the economy, in particular, how the individual experiences the economy. In so doing, the book is able to illuminate the economic landscape for the non-technical reader in a much more engaging and accessible way.

Steve Coulter examines those areas of our lives that most direcly connect with the economy - jobs, education, healthcare, housing, personal finance, welfare, consumption - and explores how the individual choices we make are determined. He shows how the things we experience, need and consume fit into a fast-changing and interdependent global economic setting and highlights the role of government and markets in shaping our lives.

Everyday Economics Reviews

All too often, the economics that people hear discussed consists of jargon and acronyms that seem remote from the practicalities of life. Steve Coulter provides a straightforward yet sophisticated guide to the elements of economics that most matter to everyone: housing, the job market, personal finances, shopping. Everyday Economics captures the complexity of the modern global economy while making it intelligible.--Diane Coyle, Professor of Economics, University of Manchester
