I am trying to improve my economic logic skills and ability to think about day-to-day issues in the systematic way economics and decisions science approaches scarcity or optimization.

A simple example to clarify, I know that MC=MR however the intuition as to why MC$<$MR is not optimal is something which educators seem to overlook to explain.

I am looking for any resources online or textbooks, workbooks, non-fiction, etc that will help me sharpen these skills.

Let me know if I can further improve my question, apologies in advance as this is my first post.

While textbooks are the best way to learn the material (MC=MR etc), here are some suggestions for improving your intuitive understanding of economics.


The Undercover Economist by Tim Harford

The Armchair Economist by Steven E. Landesburg


Marginal Revolution


Conversable Economist

The Enlightened Economist (Great for book recommendations)


Econtalk with Russ Roberts

FT Alphachat

This is just a start. Hopefully these will send you to other excellent sources.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for the suggestions I will definitely look into these! $\endgroup$
