Lutheran author Ray Keating has been diligent and hard at work! Last week he released The Weekly Economist: 52 Quick Reads to Help You Think Like an Economist. AND soon he’ll release the start of a new fiction series with Cathedral: An Alliance of Saint Michael Novel (May 12th)!
I hope to review it soon! Meanwhile, here’s a description from his amazon blurb:
If you don’t have a degree in economics, how do you figure out what actually makes economic sense and what doesn’t? Ray Keating, a leading economist on small business and entrepreneurship, offers help with a new book titled The Weekly Economist: 52 Quick Reads to Help You Think Like an Economist.
Whether via CNBC, CNN, FOX, websites, or other outlets, many assertions regarding the economy and economic policy are presented that leave people wondering what’s accurate and what’s not. That’s especially the case when declarations by one talking head are conflicted by the next one. The Weekly Economist offers quick reads on topics essential to thinking clearly on economics, or applying sound economic principles to hot topics.
Ray Keating writes, “Yes, economics and thinking more like an economist matter. It is my hope that individuals, by taking just a few minutes for a quick read each week, can clarify their thinking on economics, and thereby, improve their own lives, and the lives of family, friends, colleagues, neighbors, as well as people across the nation and around the world.”
I’m really looking forward to seeing if this is something I can use with my kids! 🙂
