Editorial Reviews

Review from previous edition: "John Black's dictionary provides clear and concise explanations...An excellent system of cross-referencing the various entries is a valuable aspect...this book is strongly recommended as a handy work of reference for any non-economist who wants to have a betteridea about what is going on in economic debates...this book deserves to sell well to a wide audience...it illuminates in a concise and accessible way many of the words and ideas used both in economics itself and in practical political debates on the subject." --Times Higher Education Supplement
