What is the economy?, and why it matters to you, Beth Leslie and Joe Richards - hardback

Summary
"Why are houses so expensive? Is our banking system going to collapse again? Should we be worried that robots are going to take all our jobs? And just what exactly is the economy anyway? Economists and politicians would have you believe it is a rarified topic best left to 'the experts'. The experts are wrong. This book uncovers what people really mean when they talk about 'the economy', taking the word off its pedestal and showing that it's just a lens for seeing the world around us. That, at its heart, economics is about you, and the society you're a part of. Explaining key concepts in economics in relation to how they directly affect your life - from your money to your home, your workplace to your future - What is the Economy? drags the obscure world of economics kicking and screaming towards the everyday and equips you with clarity and understanding"--, Provided by publisher
