I come from a strong quantitative background and am going to law school in the fall. I'm interested in financial product regulation and competition law. I have taken an introductory course in economics, but my exposure to economics stopped there.
I was wondering if you had reading suggestions in micro, macro, and financial markets. Although I don't have an issue with calculus, lin alg, or probability, I tend to prefer learning by the use of examples, e.g. "too many chefs in the kitchen" to explain diminishing returns.
I really don't like jargon and so far I seem to come across a lot of online resources (especially regarding financial products) that seem to use a lot of jargon with little reference to basic concrete examples. I tend to be very detailed oriented, so I prefer texts that lay out their variables and constants clearly. Something lighter and shorter tailored for independent study would be best.
