If you were stranded on an island that doesn't accept money, what would you do? If there are no banks, where does money go (or come from)?
The concepts of economics run our society, and yet we often have so little understanding of it. This set of books takes a first stab at explaining economics to young readers using simple stories and analogies.
Japanese author, Michiko Izumi, is known for her published works designed to help educate parents and children on financial management and basic economic principles.
