Everything You Need to Know About Economics in 140 Characters or Less
Nic Compton, Adam Fishwick, and Katie Huston; Illustrated by Daniel Mackie - All books by this author

Economic news has been making major worldwide headlines in recent months, but those among us who live outside the esoteric world of high finance are too often mystified by bankers’ and economists’ jargon. Author Katie Huston has come to our rescue with Tweetonomics, an entertaining and informative book that explains each of the most important economic terms and ideas in 20 “tweets” or less. Limiting her explanations to 140-character “tweets” she resorts to clear, simple English that flies straight to the point. In nine chapters she explains how the economy works, the role of governments, the big economic ideas, and the thinkers like Adam Smith and John Maynard Keynes who created them. Here are short and sweet definitions of terms that include—
  • Free Market
  • Supply and Demand
  • GDP
  • Balance of Trade Monetarism
  • Keynesianism
  • Marxism
  • Derivatives Market
  • Stock Options
  • Hedge Funds
  • Dow Jones
  • Credit Default Swaps
  • Fannie Mae
  • Freddie Mac . . . and many more.
In these extraordinary economic times Tweetonomics is a book that belongs on everybody’s must-read list. Brief, pithy, and to-the-point definitions are complemented with clever cartoon illustrations.
