Описание: 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 * NASDAQ 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.
