Présentation de l'éditeur :

An accessible, thoroughly engaging look at how the economy really works and its role in your everyday life

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.

  • From inflation to the Federal Reserve, taxes to the budget deficit, you get indispensible insights into everything that really matters about economics and its impact on everyday life
  • Special sections featuring additional resources of every subject discussed and where to find additional information to help you learn more about an issue and keep track of ongoing developments
  • Offers priceless insights into the roots of America′s economic crisis and its aftermath, especially the role played by excessive greed and risk–taking, and what can be done to avoid another economic cataclysm
  • Digs into globalization, the roots of the Euro crisis, the sources of China′s spectacular growth, and why the gap between the economy′s winners and losers keeps widening

Quatrième de couverture :

Praise for THE LITTLE BOOK OF ECONOMICS

"The Little Book of Economics is a quick, fun, and easy read that you′ll want to keep around as a reference, since it′s jammed with so much substance that just about any economic issue you′re going to encounter is made clear here."
Adam Davidson, co–founder and co–host of Planet Money, a co–production of NPR and This American Life

"Finally, an economics book that is neither dull nor inscrutable and that won′t put you to sleep. Greg Ip gives us a lucid and entertaining understanding of the ′dismal science′ and reveals how economic concepts and institutions affect our daily lives. This little gem can turn all of us into sophisticated and educated citizens."
Burton G. Malkiel, Professor of Economics, Princeton University; author of A Random Walk Down Wall Street and The Elements of Investing

"Greg Ip is one of the world′s best economic journalists. The Little Book of Economics will teach you much more than a little about the forces that shape all of our lives."
N. Gregory Mankiw, Professor of Economics, Harvard University; author of Principles of Economics

"Here′s the perfect way to understand the economy without breaking a sweat. Clearly written and easy to understand, The Little Book of Economics guides you through what you need to know. Ip′s bright light illuminates places previously darkened by insider jargon and arcane formulae."
Robert B. Reich, Professor of Public Policy, University of California, Berkeley; former U.S. Secretary of Labor
