Terry Jones (Monty Python) mixes expert insight, animation, puppetry and song to explain economics to everyone. Why do crashes keep happening? Why are students taught crashes don't occur? Do you shop for grapes like a Puerto Rican monkey? With a combination of playful humor and serious commentary, Boom Bust Boom draws as much on interviews and historical analysis as it does on the comedy of the absurd. With contributions from journalists and experts such as John Cassidy, Andy Haldane (Chief Economist of the Bank of England) and Nobel Prize winners Daniel Kahneman, Robert J. Shiller and Paul Krugman, Boom Bust Boom demystifies economics.
