Guide to Economic Indicators.,
This review is from: The Economist Guide To Economic Indicators (Hardcover)
This is a very concise, well thought out book explaining all the key concepts of economics and economic related information. As someone with a non-economics background but needing to pick up a good grounding in basic economic ideas quickly this was an ideal book as it is refreshingly jargon free and tailored to non-specialist readers, such as myself. Having read the book I had a solid understanding of key economic concepts such as GNP, balance of payments etc (i.e words and phrases you hear all the time but never seemed to fully understand!). The layout with each topic split into separate chapters also means that you can simply jump to an individual topic if you are in a hurry. A useful primer and reference book.
