Penguin presents Economics Without Tears by Ashok Sanjay Guha

Praise for the book: ‘Ashok Guha is one of the most impressive Indian economists today. This book demonstrates that he is also a gifted writer who can put
Across economics to a wider audience’ : JAGDISH BHAGWATI

‘Ashok Guha focuses on some of the most important ideas in economics . . . with simple examples, telling anecdotes and easy-to-grasp analytical reasoning—
all with a kind of lucidity that is exemplary’ : PRANAB BARDHAN

About the book: Economics pervades every aspect of our lives and the world. Whether you are a layman wondering what economics is all about or a fresher studying the subject, this is a book you cannot afford to miss. Stripped of mathematics and almost all jargon, this book introduces you to the basic concepts of economic theory, beginning with its first principles to some of its more surprising depths. It shows how anyone can acquire an understanding of its key principles while finding the exercise not only an exciting intellectual adventure but also great fun.

 About the author – Ashok Sanjay Guha is Professor Emeritus at the School of International Studies at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU). Educated at Presidency College, Kolkata, and Harvard University, he returned to India as professor of economics at the School of International Studies. He has been associated with the university since its inception and still teaches there—a lifelong relationship only interrupted at times by visiting professorships at Yale, UCLA, UC Berkeley, Georgetown University, the universities of Colorado, Syracuse and Melbourne, and the Institute of Development Studies at Sussex. He has published in most of the world’s leading economic journals. He has authored An Evolutionary View of Economic Growth, besides editing and contributing substantially to Trade, Growth and Industrial Structure and Markets and Morals. He also writes frequently in the popular press on a wide variety of subjects. He lives in Gurgaon with his wife and daughter.
