The authors of the bestselling series WHAT GROWN-UPS NEVER TELL YOU (Because they often just don’t know) show that there are no too complicated topics for a young reader.



Simple language, humor, and unique illustrations make seemingly difficult matters like politics, economy, intelligence, or universe perfectly understandable to everyone (aged 9 to 113).


Where does the money come from, and why is there never enough?

Why do some people earn more and others less?

Why does the state need a budget?

Is it cool to have your own company?

Why do we need taxes, and why do we need to pay them?

Why does the economy sometimes grow, and sometimes does not?

What do you do when your piggy bank or your wallet is almost empty?

Why do you need to know about economics? Find out!

This book proves that you can talk about economics not only clearly but also with humor. Here we get a solid dose of knowledge about basic and slightly more advanced economic phenomena.
