4.0 out of 5 stars Written for children....rather a good book!
By Ramesh Singh on 1 December 2018
A good book for children to learn the workings of modern economic system. But there are certain things which needs to be shared with:
1. Nowhere it is highlighted that the book is 'specially' written for children (children are the target readers is clear by the texts on the pages 67, 69, 101, 109, 113, 117, 141 and 152). It should have been highlighted by the publishers on the FRONT as well as BACK pages (better in the endorsement of Raghuram Rajan itself). It seems a case of 'businessman-ship' by the Red Turtle.
2. Endorsement by an economist of international repute (that too Raghuram Rajan) creates a 'false' sense as if it has been written for grow-ups! Such a heavyweight endorsement looks for creating just a hype to enhance sales of the book. Rather such a 'huge' endorsement was not needed. Roopa Pai is already among the largest selling writer and well known name for children books by now!
3. It has some incorrect information also such as banks borrows from RBI to lend to its customers. Rather banks borrow from RBI for not to promote the cause of their normal lending but in cases of emergency (RBI is 'bank of last resort' for other banks operating in the country).
4. Writer directly uses the term 'invest' (on page 145) without giving any idea to the reader as what is 'investment' (putting money in productive assets).
5. Writing on the MRP (page 65) is not clear enough to make children (its target readers) comprehend it.

But overall a good attempt by the writer to bring economic across to a wider readership that too the children. Rupa's 'Red Turtle' is doing commendable job by promoting such writings. Good luck!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple and straightforward
By Amazon Customer on 24 May 2018
I was always scared of economics because I never understood the topic. I ordered this book being an adult, to fight my fear n understand something. And trust me, the basics are so well explained. A must buy if you ever wanted to learn economics in a simple language while in school but could not.

4.0 out of 5 stars Economics: from earlier foe to now a friend
By B R 7 on 10 September 2018
No more haunting experience from economics now.
Must give it a try if you wanna know some key basics of economics. Obviously, this book is not everything about economics, but it gives you a picturesque of how economy of nations work. After developing a taste in economincs one can go for in-depth study if one wants.
