In this entertaining and informative guide, author Howard Yaruss breaks down our economic system in a straightforward way, avoiding jargon, formulas, graphs, and other technical material so common in books on this subject. Instead, he creates a compelling and comprehensive picture of our economy using accessible analogies, real-world observations, and entertaining anecdotes.

Understandable Economics will enable listeners to answer questions such as: Why is inequality soaring and what can we do about it?; Do tax cuts for the wealthy create jobs or just create more inequality?; Where does money come from, why does it have value, and who controls it?; What does the Fed do and how does it affect our lives?; Could alternative currencies like Bitcoin replace the dollar?; Is our national debt a threat?; Why do so many people believe free trade is good if it causes some people to lose jobs?; Why does the economy regularly turn down and how can we get it back on track?; and many more.

Understandable Economics provides the context, tools, and foundational knowledge listeners need to thoroughly understand our economy, determine which policies would work best, and champion those policies effectively.
