An accessible, thoroughly engaging look at how the economy really works and how it affects your everyday life, The Little Book of Economics is more than just a great source of information, it’s a tool of survival in today’s turbulent economic times.
Not surprisingly, regular people suddenly are paying a lot closer attention to the economy than ever before. But economics, with its weird technical jargon and knotty concepts and formulas, can be a very difficult subject to get to grips with on your own. Enter Greg Ip and his Little Book of Economics. Like a patient, good-natured tutor, Greg, one of today’s most respected economics journalists, walks you through everything you need to know about how the economy works. Short on technical jargon and long on clear, concise, plain-English explanations of important terms, concepts, events, historical figures, and major players, this revised and updated edition of Greg’s bestselling guide clues you in on what’s really going on, what it means to you and what we should be demanding our policymakers do about the economy going forward.
