About the book

From ancient times to the modern world, The Shortest History of Economics unearths the hidden economic forces behind war, innovation and social transformation. This small book tells a big story, tracing how capitalism and the market system emerged, and introducing the key ideas and people who shaped the discipline of economics.

The event will be hosted by University of Melbourne Professor of Economics Jeff Borland, and will feature Andrew Leigh in conversation with Associate Professor Laura Panza. The MC will be Benjamin Anthoney from the Economics Student Society of Australia.

The book is available for pre-order now.
