How to Speak Money – a new book from John Lanchester

September 14, 2014 Leave a comment

Will Self called John Lanchester’s previous book on money and banking – the bestselling ‘Whoops!’ – as ‘the routemap to the crazed world of contemporary finance we’ve all been waiting for’. If ‘Whoops!’ was the routemap, then his new book ‘How to Speak Money’ is the phrasebook. It shows you that it’s possible to learn to speak the language of money. Possible, desirable and perhaps even necessary if we’re to avoid feelings of complete helplessness and bafflement when confronted with the big financial forces that shape our lives.

Project Syndicate – Economists Club

March 1, 2013 Leave a comment

Here is a very good website that has leading economists discussing the issues that face the world economy. Articles are short and concise. It is well worth a look.

Project Syndicate – Economists Club

The Economists’ Club is the consummate forum for the world’s most prominent economists, business leaders, and policymakers to discuss and debate today’s most hotly contested economic issues – from China’s mercantilism and the pursuit of fiscal austerity to the intricacies of financial markets and the future of the dollar and the euro – in a non-technical way.
