Happened to Penny Candy? (Book 2, Uncle Eric
series) by Richard Maybury. I cracked open this book with a bit of
trepidation. Throughout my 16 years of schooling, I got excellent grades, except
in my college economics class. I had a wonderful teacher, but the subject matter
did not hold my interest.
Not only is the Penny Candy book easy to understand, I actually enjoyed it! It
explains our economic model, which is based on free-market Austrian economics,
and has lots of interesting facts about money. Learn why certain coins have
ridges, the origin of the word "dollar," as well as what causes inflation. The
book is written as a series of letters from "Uncle Eric" to his 9th grade
“Maybury challenges the reader to explore the inextricable connections
between law and economics, and between economic and political liberty. I can
think of no more important subject, and I highly recommend this lucid and
thoughtful volume.” —William E. Simon, former U.S. Treasury Secretary
