I thought I was hotshit with numbers until university, which is an equalizer like death. I never took any econ classes and almost failed calc, but now that I'm an adult with responsibilities and career goals, I feel the need - the need to know what those little squiggly lines mean.
I'd like to read some books that'll help me get a grasp of micro and macro economics. University text books would be fine. Beginner econ books, really.
