Financial Times Guide to the Financial Markets
From bestselling author Glen Arnold, this up-to-date jargon-busting book describes how financial markets work, where they are located and how they impact on everyday life.
Assuming no specialised prior knowledge of financial theory, it provides an authoritative and comprehensive run-down of the workings of the modern financial system.
Using real world examples from media such as the Financial Times, Arnold gives an international perspective on the financial markets with frequent comparisons in the workings of major financial centres such as the Bank of England and the City, the Federal Reserve System and Wall Street, the Japanese Central Bank, the European Central Bank and IMF and World Bank.
The book ends with a specific chapter on the financial crisis of 2008, giving an overview of what happened and why, what the effects of the actions implemented to save us were and what the new landscape looks like.
