Man Vs. Markets by Paddy Hirsch of NPR's "Marketplace" is economics explained, pure and simple, for the layperson who wouldn't know a "bond" from an "option," and who believes that a "future" is when we'll all have flying cars. Here is an illuminating, insightful, and wonderfully witty journey of discovery through the often confusing financial markets, offering clear, relatable explanations and definitions of the system's various instruments, yet less simplistically than the popular ...for Dummies series. Man Vs. Markets is a must-read handbook for everyday investors, serious students of finance and economics, and everyone who wants to understand what they're reading when they open their newspapers to the business section.

Sadly, you will not find out factual information from someone affiliated with American Public Media's (Fox Lite) Marketplace. Allow me to correct this author: all the markets are rigged for the upper echelon. Read the SEC Litigation Release site for the last 12 years. To repeat, ALL the markets are rigged for the upper .01%: LIBOR rates, forex, interest rate derivatives, precious metals markets, naked short selling by way of the DTCC's Stock Borrow Program (virtual shorting), endless financial manipulation confusing the mass of Americans. Internalization business (brokerages selling the majority of their stock sales every day to the top banks and hedge funds) allows for absolute manipulation of the retail stock market. Simply read the list of the top 35 asset management firms, then it becomes obvious.
