"Halten Sie einen Vortrag über Volkswirtschaft, und Sie werden sehen, wie schnell Ihr Publikum müde wird. Erzählen Sie Ihren Zuhörern jedoch eine Geschichte, über die sie schmunzeln können, dann sind Sie in der Lage, ihnen fast alles beizubringen." Getreu diesem Motto lehrte der berühmte Ökonom Irwin Schiff seine Söhne die Grundlagen der Volkswirtschaft. Die Geschichte, die er Ihnen dazu erzählte, haben Peter und Andrew Schiff nun aufgeschrieben. Klug und amüsant an die heutige Zeit angepasst zeigen sie, wie politisches und ökonomisches Fehlverhalten den Zusammenbruch ganzer Volkswirtschaften auslösen können. Ihr Buch ist eine Fabel darüber, wie Politik und menschliche Schwächen dazu führen, dass die Gesetze von Angebot und Nachfrage missachtet werden - was bei allen Beteiligten zu massiven finanziellen Kopfschmerzen führt. Das Buch wurde im Rahmen der Frankfurter Buchmesse 2010 mit dem International Book Award 2010 ausgezeichnet.
