A respected professor and son of Nobel Laureate Milton Friedman provides a fun and easy way for curious readers to understand basic economic ideas.
Though we may not know it, we make economic decisions every day when we recycle, drive through rush hour, go on a date, play softball or bargain with our children. In Hidden Order, David Friedman, a prominent economics scholar, shows us how to use economics to understand war, marriage, kids, crime and practically everything else (along with profits, prices, and all that stuff).
Making economics accessible to everyone, this witty presentation is a perfect reference for the amateur economist.

To David Friedman (son of Milton Friedman), economics explains everything. In a way, that's an odd thing for him to say: Friedman Jr. has never taken an economics course in his life (by training he's a physicist). Yet he defines economics broadly and uses it as a tool to understand all aspects of human behavior, from selecting a mate to picking a grocery store line to switching lanes in rush-hour traffic jams. If you like the economics-for-everyman approach of such writers as Steven E. Landsburg, then Friedman is for you.About the Author:
