The Capitalist's Bible: A Pulitzer Prize Winner Makes Sense of Economic Theory

From hedge funds to arbitrage to Roth IRAs to globalization, capitalism and all that it entails is often complicated, jargon-prone, and intimidating.

The Capitalist’s Bible offers a solution. Edited by Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times journalist Gretchen Morgenson, with an introduction by Newsweek and Washington Post columnist Robert J. Samuelson, this book is the essential primer and basic reference for students of economics and finance. Even students in related social sciences disciplines—history, political science, and international studies—will benefit from the clear and concise explanation of the fundamental concepts of the economic system that underwrites the American (and, increasingly, world) economy. The Capitalist’s Bible offers a compendium of capitalism’s many aspects—from the mechanisms and institutions that uphold it to the terms and laws that define it.

“A timely and informative primer . . . Morgenson’s book is essential for all who want to improve their capitalism literacy.”—Library Journal

The Capitalist’s Bible is . . . perfect for students or devotees of economics.”—Better Investing

If you’d like to consider The Capitalist’s Bible for one of your classes, please order an examination copy. If you’ve already assigned the book as a required text, please order a desk copy.
