Some people may underestimate lecturer for being too theoretician – and columnist for being good at telling story only. But, Robert H. Frank is different from common lecturer on economy and columnist. He truly knows what he is writing and the relations among subjects he wrote. Having the form of compilation to his writing in The New York Times. Robert H. Frank has helped his readers by classifying his works according to the science of economy.
Robert H. Frank manages to transform economy into interesting and captivating subject. His book serves proper introduction for those who want to know how U.S. economy works based on actual and factual data. The more so, Robert H. Frank provides insights that economy is not a standalone field of study. For example, from his writings, some may conclude that politics has magnitude effects towards economy and vice versa.
