Economix: How and Why Our Economy Works (and Doesn't Work), in Words and Pictures - Michael    Goodwin, Dan E. Burr, David Bach, Joel Bakan Goodwin and Burr present an overview of the economic history of the western world from seventeenth century mercantilism up to the recent mortgage derivatives collapse, all in a graphic format. Graphic works are often unfairly dismissed as childish, but here the authors have managed to present a great deal of information in an engaging format.

Some conservatives may be offended by the authors' suggestion that laissez-faire capitalism is not always the solution to all problems, but it is hard to avoid the conclusion that there is never one universal cure for all economic crises and sometimes a mixed economy functions more smoothly than either a controlled or completely uncontrolled one.
