Staff Pick of the Week: Economics In Wonderland: Robert Reich’s Cartoon Guide To A Political World Gone Mad And Mean Hardcover

December 15, 2017 Recent Fun


“A great novice guide for anyone who wants to learn about economics.” – Tate

Cartoon essays by the champion of liberal values, and one of Time’s “Ten Most Effective Cabinet Secretaries of the Twentieth Century.”

Anyone who watches the former U.S. Secretary of Labor and The Daily Show and CNBC commentator’s podcast, viewed on his Inequality Media website, has seen Reich’s informal lectures on student debt, social security, and gerrymandering, which he accompanies by quickly drawing cartoons to illustrate his major points. Collected here, for the first time, are short essays, edited from his presentations, and Reich’s clean-line, confident illustrations, created with a large sketchpad and magic marker. Economics in Wonderland clearly explains the consequences of the disastrous policies of global austerity with humor, insight, passion, and warmth, all of which are on vivid display in words and pictures. Black & white illustrations with some color.

Available now at our Lauderhill “Main” location.
