A provocative and lively exploration of the
increasingly important world of macroeconomics, by the author of
the bestselling The Undercover Economist.
Thanks to the worldwide financial upheaval, economics is no longer
a topic we can ignore. From politicians to hedge-fund managers to
middle-class IRA holders, everyone must pay attention to how and
why the global economy works the way it does.
Enter Financial Times columnist and bestselling author
Tim Harford. In this new book that demystifies macroeconomics,
Harford strips away the spin, the hype, and the jargon to reveal
the truth about how the world's economy actually works. With the
wit of a raconteur and the clear grasp of an expert, Harford
explains what's really happening beyond today's headlines, why all
of us should care, and what we can do about it to understand it
