What does a person who isn't particularly interested in seriously studying economics need to know (or read) in order to have an informed viewpoint on economic policy?

A bit of a stupid question, frankly.

It's a bit like saying "I'm not interested in history or studying it, have you got a couple of quick facts that will make me really good at history".

Economics is a complicated goddamn subject.

Acemoglu's book "Why Nations fail".
The difference between short term and long term economics.

Normal macroeconomic policy (fiscal and monetary policy) deals only with the short run, unless you really fuck up like Zimbabwe.

Basically, if there is a demand insufficiency, you lower interests rates. If that fails, you lower taxes or increase government investment.

If there is inflation, you do the opposite.

But this is only to alliviate recessions and control inflation. Economic growth in the long run deals with something entirely different and monetary policy is neutral.

Post Keynesianism and Austrian School are shit.
