I am currently writing a book on economics. The target audience is:
- People who want to understand economics, especially economics which features in the news.
- Non-academic, though would be good summer reading for students.
- As much as possible it will avoid technical jargon and be accessible to non-students of economics.
- It will answer commonly asked questions on economics (e.g. who does the government borrow from, why don’t we print more money, does technological change cause unemployment).
- It is all unique content (it is not duplicated from this site, though I’ve had a lot of practice writing on these topics.
- Explaining common newspaper headlines.
- The hope is that it will explain economics to anyone who has never studied it (or studied it many years ago and would like a refresher course)
- There is a degree of overlap with my basic A Level – Economics Revision Guide. However, since there is no exam to pass, I feel much more freedom in writing the easiest way to explain and not to be constrained by any syllabus.
If you have any economic questions, you’ve always wanted answered I would love to hear them!

It would be nice to get a publisher interested, rather than just rely on e-book format, so if you happen to be a publisher wanting to publish a guaranteed best-seller, feel free to contact 🙂
I appreciate this won’t be the first-ever book which has attempted to explain the wonderful world of economics but having taught a huge variety of students for 10 years and writing an economics blog I’ve got a good idea on what I’d like to get across.
I did write two books
What would Keynes Do? – interesting anecdotes and perspectives on everyday life from the perspective of great economists.
