The Economist guide to economic indicators : making sense of economics by Richard Stutely( Book )

5 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this comprehensive guide you'll learn what economic indicators are, what they mean, where and when they are published, how reliable they are, how to interpret them, and more. The Guide shows you how economic figures can be manipulated to "back up" almost any claim, allowing you to cut through media hype and make up your own mind about what economic indicators do - or do not - prove, confirm, or predict. The book examines 100 of the most important economic indicators - from measuring the gross national product to figures on personal investment and savings and everything in between. Separate self-contained chapters cover economic growth, trends, and cycles; population, employment, and unemployment; government; fiscal indicators; consumers; industry and commerce; balance of payments; exchange rates; money and financial markets; prices and wages; and more. And because The Economist Guide to Global Economic Indicators is written in an easy-to-read, accessible style, it's perfect for the reader without any prior knowledge of economics, business, or statistics."--Jacket

Treasure palaces : great writers visit great museums by Maggie Fergusson( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this exuberant celebration of the worlds museums, great and small, revered writers like Ann Patchett, Julian Barnes, Ali Smith, and more tell us about their favorite museums, including the Lower East Side Tenement Museum in New York, the Musée Rodin in Paris, and the Prado in Madrid. These essays, collected from the pages of The Economists Intelligent Life magazine, reveal the special hold that some museums have over us all. Acclaimed novelist William Boyd visits the Leopold Museum in Vienna--a shrine to his favorite artist, Egon Schiele, whom Boyd first discovered on a postcard as a University student. In front of her favorite Rodins, Allison Pearson recalls a traumatic episode she suffered at the hands of a schoolteacher following a trip to the Musée in Paris. Neil Gaiman admires the fantastic world depicted in British outsider artist Richard Dadds "The Fairy Fellers Master-Stroke," a tiny painting that also decorated the foldout cover of a Queen album, housed in the Victorian room of Tate Britains Pre-Raphaelite collection. Ann Patchett fondly revisits Harvard Universitys Museum of Natural History--which she discovered at 19, while in the throes of summer romance with a biology student named Jack. Treasure Palaces is a treasure trove of wonders, a tribute to the diversity and power of the museums, the safe-keepers of our worlds most extraordinary artifacts, and an intimate look into the deeply personal reveries we fall into when before great art. --
Unhappy union : how the euro crisis - and Europe - can be fixed by John Peet( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The euro was supposed to create an unbreakable bond between the nations and people of Europe. But when the debt crisis struck, the flaws of the half-built currency brought the European Union close to breaking point after decades of post-war integration. Deep fault-lines have opened up between European institutions and the nation-states?and often between the rulers and the ruled?raising profound questions about Europe's democratic deficit. Belief in European institutions and national governments alike is waning, while radicals on both the left and the right are gaining power and inf
