Evie Adomait is a professor at the University of Guelph who wrote the book Cocktail Party Economics The book is about informing people about Economics as you might have guessed but it is set up in a way that is suitable even for the common layman As Adomait put it the book is meant to inform people that think they know something about Economics but are actually misinformed and instead of correcting all the people she meets at cocktail parties she wrote a book that does that for herWhen I first heard the name of the book Cocktail Party Economics I thought to myself Oh another book informing me about economics how boring But to my amazement it kept me wanting to read more after every page I read The style of writing might be dumbed down to a certain extent but it does nonetheless provide interesting situations where economics can just be plopped inIn the beginning of every chapter Adomait begins it with a story one that almost alwats takes place at a cocktail party as you might have guessed by the title But she incorporates a variety of scenarios that all end up at a cocktail party where the protagonist learns something about economics indirectly At the beginning of chapter 3 Exchange Supply and Demand Take One two siblings on Halloween rush to get as much candy as possible but the older brother gets more candy than the smaller sister and the smaller sister doesnt seem to mind but is happy The father is recapping the night and recalls that By the end of the night their rooms looked like the floor of the New York Stock Exchange used to look after a day of heavy trading What a mess and I hate to think about the dentist bill Adomait then briefly explains supply and demand in a less trivial sense But it seems that she has simplified the complex idea of supply
