What exactly is a credit crunch? Why do footballers earn so much more than the rest of us? Which country is likely to be the world's leading economy in 10 years' time? And how does economics affect each one of us, every day?

In the seventh volume of the successful 50 Ideas series, Daily Telegraph economics editor Edmund Conway introduces and explains the central ideas of economics in a series of 50 clear and concise essays. Beginning with an exploration of the basic theories, such as Adam Smith's "invisible hand," and concluding with the latest research into the links between wealth and happiness, he sheds light on all the essential topics needed to understand booms and busts, bulls and bears, and the way the world really works.

Packed with real-life examples and quotations from key thinkers, 50 Economics Ideas provides a fascinating overview of how economics influences every aspect of our lives, from buying a house to what we had for breakfast this morning.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 André Rodrigues | 8/21/2013

    " Good book as an introduction to various economic concepts, but like other books in the series, I can't help but feel that it would be better to go deeper into some of the topics. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sam Motes | 7/24/2013

    " Good brief reviews of key concepts in Economics and business. Obviously not enough here to become an expert on any one topic but a good high level summary of each topic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Francis | 7/4/2013

    " Good summary of basic ideas. Liberal slant. "

    " A good intro and representation of mainstream veiws "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark | 1/3/2013

    " An interesting introduction to a subject that I regularly wish I knew more about. I learnt from this book that Economists are generally incurable optimists with a worryingly simplistic view of human nature. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James C | 10/30/2012

    " This an excellent book which does a great job at outlining basic economic concepts. If you'd like to understand a bit more about the world we live in and the markets which dominate you can do much worse than this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alain | 9/13/2012

    " Great book. Bite sized pieces of understanding the ideas that make our world run. "
