Economics is about solving math problems, right? As this compendium of over 100 puzzles and brain teasers illustrates, logic and creativity are also essential, and Steven Landsburg makes the case that thinking beyond the obvious is the highest goal of all. This unconventional primer explores key concepts and pitfalls, using warm-up exercises, logic and probability problems, and more complex topics like inferences, strategy, and irrationality. Knowing that the answers are included, try your luck with such conundrums as "The Persimmon Problem," "The Ferocious Pirates," and "Medieval Justice."
