The Clipper Ship reader is a fast, clear, and fun explanation of the economics you need for success in your career, business and investments. It focuses on how government and economics interact; in particularly, how government’s interference in the economy affects business, careers, and investments. It’s a practical, nuts-and-bolts strategy for prospering in our turbulent economy. Topics include business cycle management, prices, controls, supply & demand, banking, inflation, investing & saving, business landscape (sinkholes and cones), booming cities, fiscal policy, sales, production, and ecosystem. The reader is not included.
The series is based on "letters" written by Uncle Eric to his niece and nephew covering topics from their social studies class.
