April 26: Prof. Eveline Adomait Featured on CBC Radio One
Prof. Eveline Adomait was featured on CBC Radio One's Fresh Air program on Saturday discussing her new book, Cocktail Party Economics. The economics professor talked about the book and how various aspects of economics apply to our daily lives.
Cocktail Party Economics aims to help the average person navigate through those often tricky conversations that can pop up while networking or simply meeting with friends. Her book tackles big ideas — supply and demand, scarce commodities, marginal value, monopoly power — in a fun and accessible way.
Each chapter begins with a character’s situation that is then related to an economic concept and ends with a summary on a cocktail party napkin to help readers recall basic ideas.
