Whatever Happened to Penny Candy

This book is one of the easiest resources you’ll find for teaching economics.

Written as a series of letters from “Uncle Eric,” the author uses straightforward talk and clear metaphors to explain to his nephew how money works. He discusses the origin of money and the dollar, and also delves into several economic principles (inflation, recession, depression). Not only perfect for your business-minded students, this is one of those rare books that both young and old will learn from. So before your kids jump into their next lucrative business adventure, have them read a little of Uncle Eric’s advice first.

There’s a whole series of “Uncle Eric” books on other topics ranging from money to history.

Note: The author explains his libertarian world-view in Amazon Error.
