About this product
- DescriptionRoss Gittins is the ecomics guru of Australia. He has the extremely rare and enviable knack of making ecomics relevant, accessible and, most importantly of all, interesting. And Ross is a man on a mission. He wants to help us to understand just how the ecomy around us works, and more importantly, to help us take control of our lives, do less of what doesn't satisfy us and more of what does. Sound simple? Sound appealing? You bet. While the very word 'ecomics' strikes fear in the hearts of many, as the great English ecomist Alfred Marshall puts it, ecomics is the study of mankind in the ordinary business of life. And it's this ordinary business of life that Ross Gittins wants to explain to us: be it to do with work, leisure and the shortage of time; homes and housework; buying and saving; parents and their kids; kids and their education; t to mention our happiness and the things that may threaten it - crime, taxation, health and ageing. Ecomics is the stuff of life, our life, and we need to understand it. Written in his trademark friendly and accessible style, Gittimics sums up all the things Ross wants to share with us after more than 30 years as an acclaimed ecomic journalist on The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age. Gittimics is for everyone who's never really understood ecomics, but was too embarrassed to admit it. Go on, what have you got to lose?
