“For an engaging, insightful, and somewhat quirky take on how our economy works, The Econosphere is a must read. Craig Thomas does a masterful job of explaining basic economic fundamentals so that anyone can understand them and profit as a result.” –Mark Zandi, Chief Economist, Moody’s Economy.com
“Classic Craig! Born with an ability to write informatively, Craig has delivered the layperson’s guide to everything economic! Clear, informative, and entertaining prose on the inner workings of the economy. A must read for anyone who wants to understand how the world works.” –Raymond G. Torto, PhD, Global Chief Economist, CB Richard Ellis
“An engaging read. Craig’s view of what he calls ‘the Econosphere’ is really fascinating and is simply, yet eloquently, focused on what we can achieve as individuals and, at the same time, contribute to the betterment of mankind. This book encourages each of us to become stewards of the resources we use to sustain ourselves. It is a thoughtful, purposeful, and inspiring read.” –Steve Felix, Head of Real Estate Client Relations—North America, Aviva Investors, and author of Simplicate Your Life: Volume 1
“The Econosphere is a quick and enjoyable read with a powerful message. This fresh perspective on the workings of the economy is provided through surprising but logical comparisons to the environment and the green movement, combined with many witty anecdotes. I feel I have a new understanding of the economy’s nature. We should all be ‘green’ economists!” –Robert M. White, Jr., Founder and President, Real Capital Analytics
