Economics Gone Astray is a collection of essays on critical topics in macroeconomics that frame the issues in terms of clearly stated assumptions, highlighting the errors often made by professional economists, and allowing readers to better analyze market behavior and the economic consequences of policy decisions.

The book differs from textbook economics, as it tackles sophisticated topics without using mathematics or technical jargon. This makes the book highly accessible to all types of readers, from investors and investment professionals, to professors and their students.
