cartoon econLongtime friend of Sightline, Yoram Bauman, will have a new book out next week: The Cartoon Introduction to Economics. (It’s illustrated by Grady Klein.)

I expect this book will be good stuff. You shouldn’t think that because the presentation is offbeat and funny, it isn’t serious too. Yoram’s a PhD economist and his book is good enough to garner a cover blurb from Gregory Mankiw, among other heavy hitters in the world of economics. 

You can find ordering information over on Yoram’s website.

I guess I should also mention that among other contributions to Sightline, Yoram co-authored Tax Shift with Alan Durning back in 1998 (when we still went by the name Northwest Environment Watch).
