A comic-book introduction to economics from David Orrell, the author of Economyths: 11 Ways Economics Gets it Wrong. With illustrations from Borin Van Loon. Part of the internationally-recognised Introducing Graphic Guide series.

Today, it seems, all things are measured by economists. The so-called 'dismal science' has never been more popular — or, given its failure to predict or prevent the recent financial crisis, more controversial.

But what are the findings of economics? Is it really a science? And how can it help our lives?

Introducing Economics traces the history of the subject from the ancient Greeks to the present day. Orrell and Van Loon bring to life the contributions of great economists — such as Adam Smith, Karl Marx, John Maynard Keynes and Milton Friedman — and delve into ideas from new areas such as ecological and complexity economics that are revolutionizing the field.

Economics, and money itself, are also based on the Pythagorean idea that all things can be reduced to number.

The word “economics” was derived from a work by the philosopher Xenophon (431–c. 360 BC), who was influenced by Pythagoras. His tract Oikonomikos described how to efficiently organize and run an agricultural estate.

The second, unnatural, type of exchange occurred when goods were exchanged for the sole purpose of making money. Usury (lending money for interest) was particularly unethical, since it allows money to grow without limit, violating the bounds of nature.
