Reviews

"Taking the mystery out of economics is a public service. Brilliant Economics achieves this with aplomb". Chris Giles, Economics Editor, Financial Times Economics is vitally important in everyday life because we are all living with the consequences of the global crisis, but it's often confusing. Brilliant Economics is a crystal clear and illuminating guide through the maze of financial jargon and difficult concepts. It explains in straightforward terms what the economic theories mean and also how they affect the things everybody cares about - jobs, prices, interest rates.
Diane Coyle, OBE, Enlightenment Economics and Smith School, Oxford University

Phil writes in a clear manner, simplifying ideas that can be complex. He has a fine ability to mix relevant and topical observations with more detailed discussions, bringing a topic to life and making it easily understood.
Ian Bright, Senior Economist, ING and leader of eZonomics, ING's international consumer economics project
