Overview

Finance has always been at the heart of business. Today it is more crucial than ever. It is also much more complex as a result of the globalisation of financial markets, the proliferation of new financial products and the staggering increase in the number of financial transactions that take place every day - and the speed at which they can now be done. Pocket Finance is a clear, concise and lively guide to the modern international world of finance, containing: * Concise essays on tracking savings from their source, the limits to globalisation, the convergence of corporate finance, the madness of markets and the impact of digital technology. * An A-Z of key terms and concepts from Alpha stock and Aval, through Kerb trading and Ponzi scheme, to Warehousing the Workout loans. * Wide ranging appendices. This pocket series brings the clarity for which The Economist is famous to the complex subjects that those in business, finance or the professions need to understand. Organised in three sections, the books are designed to be easy to dip into. Full of hard facts and insight, and liberally spiced with irreverence, they are intended to amuse and entertain as well as inform.
