30-Second Economics

Keynesian Economics, Free Market Capitalism, Monetarism, Game Theory and the Invisible Hand. Sure, you know what they mean. That is, you've certainly heard of them. But do you know enough about these economic theories to join a dinner party debate or dazzle the bar with your financial knowledge?

30 Second Economics takes the top 50 economic theories, and explains them to the general reader in half a minute, using nothing more than two pages, 300 words and one picture. Economics will suddenly seem a lot more fun than the economy, and make a lot more sense, and along the way you'll meet founding fathers of modern economics such as Adam Smith, David Ricardo and Alfred Marshall. From Marxism to Mercantilism, plus everything in between, this is the ultimate 'crash' course in economic theory.

    The laborer’s use value is the ability to produce commodities, and in return the laborer is provided with a fair exchange value, or wage, which meets his basic costs of living. Yet when the laborer’s use value is combined with the machines owned by the employer, the commodities produced are worth more than the laborer’s exchange value; in this way a surplus is generated, which the employer takes as profit—this, Marx argued, is “exploitation.” Such profit then provides the means by which capitalism can grow and expand, powered by the continual expansion of exploitation.

    Practical men, who believe themselves to be quite exempt from any intellectual influence, are usually the slaves of some defunct economist.’

    Many economists, myself included, believe that our insights into how the world works have implications for how the world should work in general. As a result, the scientific theories of economics blur into political theories of the good society.
