First review of IT’S THE ECONOMY, STUPID 
a Rhodes Scholar 
Education in One Hour is in!

“André Jute writes with great clarity and brevity to deliver a credible and creditable history of western economic theory and actuality in less than 21,000 words. If you know nothing about economics, this booklet is a great way to get started. If you know a bit, this well-structured synopsis is an invaluable aid to organizing what you know into a more coherent whole.”

Dakota Franklin (dakotafranklin) | 306 comments Only Andre would think of stuffing a major strand of Western thought into 20K words. Mr Fitzconner captures the success of Andre's scheme well in "great clarity and brevity ... this well-structured synopsis".

This book belongs in every school library
IT'S THE ECONOMY, STUPID a Rhodes Scholar Education in One Hour by Andre Jute
5 Star Review by Matthew "The Dean" Posner

In this slim volume, Andre Jute presents the entire history of Western economic theory and practice, from ancient times and the barter economy, through mercantilism, capitalism, the industrial revolution, and Marxism up to the present day. Everything is explained concisely, briefly, and with the authority that comes with the author's dominant intellect and years of observation and serious thought. The explanations are as clear as is possible given the premise of condensing such complex subject matter into such a small package.

As a teacher and college instructor, I can't properly express what a useful tool this book is for me. Not only does it fill in the gaps in my knowledge, but it is structured ideally for students to digest in small, orderly blocks, with all the key names and terms in bold type. This layout is ideal for my college students who are intelligent but have limited time and would eschew a more detailed account. The book is also ideal for my high school students who are seeking simplified explanations for use in their social studies classes. This book belongs in every high school library.

Andre Jute is known for his strong opinions and his great rhetorical power. His interpretations and perspectives may be problematic for some readers. As for me, though, I find that Andre Jute is persuasive and deeply credible, page after page.

Xs -- Bloody hell, we have to be so careful these days. I first typed XXX, which once used to stand for kisses, and now for internet pornography... And, for all I know, Xs may stand for "excess", which isn't what Sharon and I are about either.
