Very useful introduction - but "without" maths!,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Economics (Taschenbuch)
"Economics" (Mankiw,Taylor) is probably one of the best introductions into economics!
There are many explanations (which are practically oriented), many diagrams and current examples, but there is nearly no mathematical analysis of economics. Nothing is more obvious than the fact that economics do not work without mathematics and this is the heaviest disadvantage of the book.
Nevertheless it helps to understand how economists argue, how they derive the simplifications for different models and therefore the book is recomendable to study!
