Economics in two lessons

10 May 2019

Fancy learning the essentials of economics in just two lessons? School of Economics Professor John Quiggin has you covered with his new book.

Economics in Two Lessons is, or at least began as, a response to Henry Hazlitt’s Economics in One Lesson, a defense of free-market economics first published in 1946. But why respond to a 70-year old book when new books on economics are published every day? Why two lessons instead of one? And where does opportunity cost fit into all this?
