‘Required reading… it brings the power of economics to life’

STEVEN D. LEVITT, AUTHOR OF FREAKONOMICS

Ever wondered why the gap between rich and poor nations is so great, or why it’s so difficult to get a foot on the property ladder, or where the banks went wrong? This book offers the hidden story behind these and other forces that shape our day-to-day lives, often without our knowing it.

‘Lively and witty… After reading this book a trip to the supermarket is an entirely different experience’ THE TIMES

‘A playful guide to the economics of everyday life’ THE ECONOMIST

‘As Tim Harford demonstrates brilliantly in this enjoyable book,

the powerful underlying ideas of economics can, in the hands of the right person, illuminate every aspect of the world we inhabit

MARTIN WOLF, AUTHOR OF WHY GLOBALIZATION WORKS

“Harford writes like a dream- and is also one of the leading economic thinkers of his generation. From his book I found out why there’s a Starbucks on every corner, what Bob Geldof needs to learn to make development aid work properly, and how not to get duped in an auction. Reading The Undercover Economist is like spending an ordinary day wearing X-ray goggles’

DAVID BODANIS, AUTHOR OF ELECTRIC UNIVERSE AND E=MC

Quantity :

What made for dull school textbooks comes alive in his capable hands… This book will come as a welcome wake-up call. If nothing else, it should make you a much more savvy shopper… Any student at GCSE level being taught by a bored economics teacher who should be teaching media studies should definitely make a bee-line for it, as indeed should people who know a lot about economics, if only to learn how to write in the hope of making the “dismal science” less so’ Express

`The Undercover Economist is an excellent Undercover Introduction to Economics. If you think that sounds boring, you probably ought to read it’ Financial Times

‘Economists do indeed think differently from the rest of us. This book gives an excellent introduction as to quite why they do Telegraph

‘As lively and witty an introduction to the supposedly “dismal science” as you are likely to read’ The Times

‘If you want a quick overview, you can’t do better than The Undercover Economist Wall Street Journal

`A playful guide to the economics of everyday life… The Undercover Economist succeeds in taking the chalk dust out of the subject.’ The Economist
