"Everyman's Dictionary of Economics, " the third volume of "The Collected Works of Arthur Seldon, " 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."Everyman's Dictionary of Economics" 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."Everyman's Dictionary of Economics, " Volume 3 of "The Collected Works of Arthur Seldon, " is an indispensable reference for laypeople and for academics.The entire series includes: Volume 1 "The Virtues of Capitalism" (September 2004) Volume 2 "The State Is Rolling Back" (November 2004) Volume 3 "Everyman's Dictionary of Economics" (January 2005) Volume 4 "Introducing Market Forces into "Public" Services" (February 2005) Volume 5 "Government Failure and Over-Government" (May 2005) Volume 6 "The Welfare State: Pensions, Health, and Education" (October 2005) Volume 7 "The IEA, the LSE, and the Influence of Ideas" (December 2005)
