I recently made my first trip to a foreign country. I'm quite amazed by how things work. Why are things priced differently at different places? Is the bed-sheet that I bought from that country worth the same in my country? I brought my bed-sheet there in \$40 while the same will cost less than \$10 in my country.
Also, I learnt about utility through this video. I'm just in an awe. These things are so beautiful yet not visibly understandable to me. I'm sad as well as happy I didn't learn about any of these in my school. Sad because I potentially wouldn't have ever studied it. Happy because I can learn this thing with interest, as the school and university I attended have usually taught me in a way that makes things dull.
My background is bachelors in Computer Science. I'm decent at maths. I would like to ask you for book recommendations that will help me get some idea of how things work from an economic standpoint. How banks work, how loan works, what is money etc.
I would like you to suggest me two kinds of books:
- That are example based, easy, concise, less mathematical but more story based.
- That are mathematical and cover these theory in details.
