Why smaller classrooms are more expensive but not better?
How progressive should the income tax be?
Why do entrepreneurs in general earn not more than employees?
These are just three questions that are answered by 68 economists in the book 'Canon van de economie’.
"Since the crisis, economists are often sitting targets. What do they know anyway? Is economics a science? This has encouraged us to make a book about what economists know. What makes this book unique is that really all authorities in our field (68 professors) have written together what insights economic science has to offer to society. Anyone who is interested in economics, can read this book and after 250 short insights the reader feels at home in economic thinking.”
