The Financial Times Guide to Using the Financial Pages is the definitive guide to finding, reading, understanding and acting on financial information.

Beginning with an explanation of the financial markets and key players, Romesh Vaitilingam teaches you the language of modern finance and investment.

  • An explanation of the roots of the recent financial crisis and economic downturn, and an account of how crisis jargon has become mainstream, what it means and how it affects you

  • Descriptions of the key international organisations of the world economy, including the G20, the International Monetary Fund and the European Central Bank

  • How to sift through print and online material to find out what really is valuable

  • A glossary of key words, key ratios and key stock market indicators
