Naked Economics: Undressing the Dismal Science is a book by Charles Wheelan that seeks to translate basic economic issues into a format that can be easily read by people with little or no previous knowledge of economics. The Chicago Tribune described the book as "Translat[ing] the arcane and often inscrutable jargon of the professional economist into language accessible to the inquiring but frustrated layman."[1] A fully revised and updated version of the book with a foreword by Burton Malkiel was published in 2010.

It has been translated into eleven languages.[2]
