Recent Book Arrival: The Haiku Economist

Publishers often send me books for potential reviewing at EPJ. I don't review them all, but I will announce any books I receive.

Jim Cox, an associate professor and an adjunct scholar at the Mises Istitute, has set along his book, The Haiku Economist: 101 Poems about Free-Market Economics.

From the blurb:
Haiku is a Japanese poetic form that presents ideas and images in a succinct 17 syllables. Can profound economic principles be presented in such a tiny package? This book answers with a resounding "Yes!"
After a glance through the book by me, I got the sense that the book is hardcore with strong emphasis on Austrian school economics and libertarianism---and a fun read. If you are looking for a very basic, easy to read quick introduction to economics, this is the book. It also makes a great gift for anyone you want to introduce to sound economics.
