A Pedestrian's Guide to the Economy
by Orley Amos
Publisher: AmosWEB 2008
Most books on the economy are written by economists for economists. As a handy reference source, this text provides answers to many of the most asked, a few of the least asked, and some of the never asked questions about the economy. The author begins with seven fundamental features of the economy that you probably know, but then again, may not. Because it gives you a working start into the economy, this journey is best taken before moving on to the more detailed topics in section II.

by F.W. Taussig - The MacMillan Company
The author states the principles of economics in such form that they shall be comprehensible to an educated and intelligent person who has not before made any systematic study of the subject. The book does not gloss over difficulties, though.
This text is designed to provide you with a very comprehensive and easy-to-understand introduction to economics. This text will assume no background in economics. All you really need is an open mind and an interest in learning.
by Robert P. Murphy - Ludwig von Mises Institute
This is easily the best introduction to economics for the young reader because it covers both pure economic theory and also how markets work. Murphy has the right frame of mind and mastery of the subject matter to provide the best possible pedagogy.
by Carl Menger - Ludwig von Mises Institute
It is said that this book is the best introduction to economic logic ever written. Carl Menger elucidated the precise nature of economic value, and rooted economics firmly in the real-world actions of individual human beings.
