Product description

Review

`Review from previous edition John Black's dictionary provides clear and concise explanations...An excellent system of cross-referencing the various entries is a valuable aspect...this book is strongly recommended as a handy work of reference for any non-economist who wants to have a better idea about what is going on in economic debates...this book deserves to sell well to a wide audience...it illuminates in a concise and accessible way many of the words and ideas used both in economics itself and in practical political debates on the subject.' Times Higher Education Supplement

Product Description

This authoritative and comprehensive dictionary contains clear, concise definitions of approximately 3,500 key economic terms. Covering all aspects of economics including economic theory and policy, applied microeconomics and macroeconomics, labour economics, public economics and public finance, monetary economics, and environmental economics, this is the essential reference work in this area.

The new edition of this dictionary has been updated to include entries on China, India, and South America, to reflect the increase in prominence of these regions in the global economy. There is strong coverage of international trade and many entries on economic organizations and institutions from around the world. Fully revised to keep up to date with this fast-moving field, this new edition expands the coverage to include entries such as austerity measures, General
Anti Abuse Rule, propensity score matching, and shadow bank.

Entries are supplemented by entry-level web links, which are listed and regularly updated on a companion website, giving the reader the opportunity to explore further the areas covered in the dictionary. Useful appendices include a list of institutional acronyms and their affiliated websites, a list of Nobel prize-winners in economics, the Greek alphabet, and a list of relevant websites.

As ideal for browsing as it is useful for quick reference, this dictionary remains an essential guide for students and teachers of economics, business, and finance, as well as for professional economists and anyone who has to deal with economic data.
