A recent classic which defends free trade and systematically refutes the most common criticisms and misconceptions

The third volume of The Collected Works of Arthur Seldon

Everyman’s Dictionary of Economics translates the often obscure jargon and technical terminology of economics into direct, plain English understandable by both the academic and the layperson. The most abstruse topic becomes clear as Seldon conveys the sense in ordinary language, without loss of meaning through oversimplification.

In addition to conveying a sense of how economic thought has evolved over the centuries, the dictionary stimulates and challenges readers in its questioning of conventional wisdom about government intervention and manipulation of economies. It too has “stood the test of time”; nearly thirty years after the second edition and forty years after the first, this book still engages readers – economists and nonprofessionals alike.
