Economix: How our Economy Works (and Doesn’t Work) - Michael Goodwin - Abrams Comicarts - $21.95
My econ teacher in high school was kind of a jerk but in a way I still miss him. He made the class fun by pretending to bite right into a gold coin one day. It was gnarly and the experience still haunts me to this day! In any event, if this book had been around I would have flaked on every single class… makes the concepts so easy!!!
