Explaining economics: request for help

Postby blenkarne » Mon May 27, 2019 8:37 am

Hello

Are there any economics grads out there who might be willing to explain some macroeconomic concepts to me in easy to understand terms?

I feel a tad embarrassed, particularly in my line of work and at my age, that I cannot quite grasp them but every time I try, I keep going around in circles. Currently, I’m not working and so with more time on my hands, I’m determined to crack this if I can!

I cannot promise much in return except perhaps a “nice cup of tea and a biscuit”, and it goes without saying a lot of gratitude if some kind soul could help to lift this mental fog for me.

Here's hoping...many thanks!

Try reading Economics: The Users Guide by Ha-Joon Chang. It is a simple book to read and takes you through the basics. Read reviews on amazon to give further background.

Good morning V888, I sent A PM a few days ago...not sure if you have received it as it still seems to be in my Outbox? Thanks!
