  • The Concise Encyclopedia of Economics.   This is a terrific compilation of articles put together by David Henderson.  From the marketing blurb: "The entries cover numerous topics including basic concepts, discrimination and labor issues, corporations and financial markets, issues in economic history, economics of legal issues, regulation, environmental regulation, taxes, economic policy, macroeconomics, money and banking, international economics, economics outside the United States, economic systems, schools of economic thought, and more."  Highly recommended!
