The more they tell us that we don't need to know anything about economics before we start, the more worried I get. So please, dear readers, do you have any suggestions for books on economics? Think pre-introductory level. Remedial economics, if you will. I know nothing about economics except that I think it's somehow related to money. And math. And, according to Freakonomics, baby names in California. See, I still don't get that connection.
Anyway, yes, I did read Freakonomics. But it didn't explain the basic concepts of economics, and I'm sure there must be some. (Perhaps I should invest in a doll and some needles? Go on a field trip to Haiti?)
Can you believe my uncle is a professor of economics? ABD at University of Chicago, of all places? I'd love to take a class with him, but the commute to Paris would kill me. Also, he's now retired. So much for that idea.
In a shocking turn of events, I turned in my transcript a full day before the deadline! Yes! I did. Then I wandered through the bookstore, picked up a hat, and ogled the law books they had out already. I wish I knew which section I'm in, although I did get some ideas about the reading list for that law theory class. And I got an idea of how much books are going to cost. I hope the rest of the student loans get approved soon.
