QUICK WIN ECONOMICS is aimed at practical people who understand that economics is important, because economic models inform the most powerful people in the world, who make decisions based on the advice of economists. Those decisions affect the daily lives of millions of people, for better and for worse. The mistakes of economists can have serious consequences. It pays to know what they are talking about.

QUICK WIN ECONOMICS will help you decode economic phenomena – for example, you’ll find out exactly why a change in central bank lending rates will change your mortgage, making you richer, or poorer. You’ll find out what a stock is, and what a stock market index is. You’ll understand the basics of exchange rate movements, while avoiding jargon.

QUICK WIN ECONOMICS is designed to let you dip in and out as you’d like, looking for answers to questions you might have, looking for clarification, or just for a place to start. Each entry is tagged by one of five subject areas:

  • Economics Essentials;

  • Micro-economics;

  • Macro-economics;

  • Economic Policy;

  • Applied Economics.

You also can use the grid system in the contents section to search for questions and answers across a range of topics. And, where it’s appropriate, you’ll get cross-referenced answers to sources that can give you a fuller explanation, and take your reading further.

QUICK WIN ECONOMICS is also available as an iPhone app.
