Accessible, easy to use, and practical, the Dictionary of Economics is the first dictionary of its kind you don't need a degree in economics to use. Accomplished lexicographers and financial experts Jae K. Shim and Joel G. Siegel define more than 2,200 essential economics terms clearly, simply, and with a minimum of technical jargon and economic theory. This dictionary is written especially for businesspeople and general readers who want to keep abreast of the latest economic trends. It's packed with practical examples and applications drawn from the worlds of business, finance, and politics, and it provides detailed definitions of all important new terms as well as traditional economics terminology and everyone's favorite, slang. Whether you're a small business owner, a manager working in a for-profit or not-for-profit organization, or simply someone who wants to know more about the economic trends that influence nearly every aspect of modern life, the Dictionary of Economics is a valuable resource you don't want to be without. Among the more than forty books Drs. Shim and Siegel have collaborated on are the Dictionary of Personal Finance and the Dictionary of Accounting Terms.
