Summary "What can the history of money tell us about the future of the euro? Why do the rich now have less leisure timnethan the poor? Is maximising GDP the right goal for economics? Will robots boost workers' pay, or cut it? -- Richard Davies, economics editor of The Economist, takes us on a journey through the changing world of economics. He explores: the economic slumps that have shaped modern finance ; firms with ecnomics at their operating core ; the shifting focus of economics from banking to labor economics. ... Along the way, we encounter the global economy laid bare, from banks, panics, and crashes to innovative new policies to improve how markets function; from discussions around jobs, pay, and inequality to the promise of innovation and productivity; from the implications of emerging markets and the globalisation of trade through to the sharing economy and the economics of Google and eBay."-- Back cover.
