Quick Overview

Money is our global language. Yet so few of us can speak it. The language of the economic elites can be complex, jargon-filled and completely baffling. And we need to understand it because, if we can't, then the elites will write their own rules.

Details

This is a funny, clear and brilliantly entertaining guide to the world of finance from the bestselling author of Capital and Whoops! "A hugely enjoyable book...It's true: anything's understandable if you have a fun teacher...Lanchester, award-winning novelist apart, is a kind of brainy Everyman, a brilliant communicator." (The Times). Money is our global language. Yet so few of us can speak it. The language of the economic elites can be complex, jargon-filled and completely baffling. And we need to understand it because, if we can't, then the elites will write their own rules. Now John Lanchester, bestselling author of Capital and Whoops!: Why everyone owes everyone and no one can pay, sets out to decode it for all of us, explaining everything from high-frequency trading and the World Bank to the difference between bullshit and nonsense. As funny as it is devastating, How To Speak Money is a primer and a polemic. It's a reference book you'll find yourself reading in one sitting. And it gives you everything you need to demystify the world of high finance - the world that dominates how we all live now.
