I believe that you will find this to be a useful resource: whether you are a student who finds the material easy to understand or a student who is having problems understanding one or more topics covered in your economics class; whether you are taking an introductory economics course or an intermediate-level course; whether you are studying economics because you are interested in the subject or because you are required to take the subject; whether you are a student at all or simply somebody who wants to understand economics; whether you are interested in further studies or if you simply want to become better-informed as a citizen, voter, political “junkie”, or somebody trying to keep up with current events; whether you are looking for a learning resource in addition to other resources or if you are looking for a primary resource; or if you are an educator who wants an inexpensive resource for your students to use for any of the above reasons.

This resource is an easy way to learn concepts relating to economics and the economy.

I have worked with students located throughout the United States and from many different countries, on six different continents; students from many different school systems with different points of emphasis; students with different levels of knowledge, different backgrounds, and different levels of interest in the subject. I have received numerous comments and testimonials regarding the teaching methods that I incorporate in Basic Economics for Students and Non-Students Alike.
