Inhaltsangabe: Economic news has been making major worldwide headlines in recent months, but those among us who live outside the esoteric world of high finance are too often mystified by bankers' and economists' jargon. Author Katie Huston has come to our rescue with Tweetonomics, an entertaining and informative book that explains each of the most important economic terms and ideas in 20 "tweets" or less. Limiting her explanations to 140-character "tweets," she resorts to clear, simple English that flies straight to the point. In nine chapters she explains how the economy works, the role of governments, the big economic ideas, and the thinkers like Adam Smith and John Maynard Keynes who created them. Here are short and sweet definitions of terms that include--
Free Market * Supply and Demand * GDP
Balance of Trade * Monetarism * Keynesianism
Marxism * Derivatives Market * Stock Options
Hedge Funds * Dow Jones * NASDAQ
Credit Default Swaps * Fannie Mae * Freddie Mac . . . and many more.
In these extraordinary economic times Tweetonomics is a book that belongs on everybody's must-read list. Brief, pithy, and to-the-point definitions are complemented with clever cartoon illustrations.
From the Inside Flap:
Ever wondered what futures and derivatives are, or puzzled over the difference between fiscal policies and monetary policies? What is the balance of trade, and what are Â"sticky pricesÂ"? This entertaining, handy little guide reveals all, in refreshingly simple bite-size tweets.
Presents 140 money-spinning terms and intriguing ideas in no more than 20 tweets, each of 140 characters or less.
Profiles the most important economists of the past 150 years and the thinking behind the economic strategies of political parties and governments.
Includes an informative glossary of essential economic terms in an innovative format that is easy to read and assimilate.
We hear a lot about economics in the news these days, but how much do we really understand? All too often experts assume their audience knows as much about the subject as they do. For instance, what is a balance of trade deficit? Why do interest rates affect the amount of cash in circulation? Who sets interest rates?
Tweetonomics pecks a hole in the jargon and explains the 140 most important economic terms and concepts in 20 Â"tweetsÂ" or less. The book is divided into nine chapters covering such issues as globalization, boom and bust, Â"GreenÂ" economics, and the everyday workings of national economies. It also gives an overview of the past 150 years and the people who shaped them.
