Everyman's Dictionary of Economics

£12.99

Product description

Brand new and sealed.
Part 3: The Collected Works Of Arthur Seldon

This is the third volume of The Collected Works of Arthur Seldon', which translates the often obscure jargon and technical terminology of economics into direct, plain English understandable by both the academic and the layperson. The most abstruse topic becomes clear as he conveys the sense in ordinary language, without loss of meaning through oversimplification. The volume covers a wide range of economic thought and includes every relevant term that the average person might encounter in a written or other treatment of the subject. In addition to conveying a sense of how economic thought has evolved over the centuries, the Dictionary stimulates and challenges readers in its questioning of conventional wisdom about government intervention and manipulation of economies. It too has "stood the test of time"; nearly thirty years after the second edition and forty years after the first, this book still engages readers -- economists and nonprofessionals alike. An indispensable reference for laypeople and for academics. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Colin Robinson was a business economist for 11 years. He was then appointed to the Chair of Economics at the University of Surrey in Guildford where he founded the Department of Economics and is now Emeritus Professor. For many years he has been associated with the London-based Institute of Economic Affairs, and from 1992 to 2002 he was the IEAs Editorial Director.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
