9780571309849: How to Speak Money

To those who don't speak it, the language of money can seem impenetrable and its ideas too complex to grasp. How to Speak Money is acclaimed writer John Lanchester's entertaining and informative attempt to bridge the gap between the money people and the rest of us.
With characteristic wit and candor ("wickedly funny" --Dwight Garner, New York Times), Lanchester shows how the world of finance and economics really works--from the terms and conditions of your personal checking account to the evasions of bankers appearing in front of Congress. How to Speak Money reveals how the language of money is often a tool to conceal and mislead; he explains hundreds of common economic terms, from GDP to the IMF, amortization and securitization to collateralized debt obligation; and he argues that we all need to speak money lest those who do write the financial rules for themselves.

About the Author:

John Lanchester is the author of three novels, including The Debt to Pleasure and Capital, and well as I.O.U., a book on the financial crisis. He is a regular contributor to The New Yorker and The New York Review of Books and was awarded the 2008 E.M. Forster Award. He lives in London.

Review:

“Mixes the helpful, the sarcastic and the entertaining . . . [with] a touch of Ambrose Bierce’s Devil’s Dictionary about it.”
- Jim Higgins, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

“An idiosyncratic collection of short, sharp essays translating the jargon of finance with admirable concision and wit.”
- Peter Sokolowski, New York Times Book Review

“Insightful and often funny... An invaluable primer.”
- Ian Critchley, Sunday Times

“A hugely enjoyable book... Lanchester is a kind of brainy Everyman, a brilliant communicator.”
- Melanie Reid, The Times

“An entertaining and informative read... Witty, provocative and engaging.”
- Evening Standard

How to Speak Money is a wonderful and enlightening book. Refreshingly clear, sharp, and funny, it’ll help you understand not only what the language of finance means but also why it matters.”
- James Surowiecki, best-selling author of The Wisdom of Crowds

“Reading this book is like meeting an easy-going guy at a cocktail party who can explain everything that’s always mystified you about high finance―‘inverted yield curve,’ anyone?―with sparkle, wit, and crystal clarity. And if you’re already a finance-insider, you’ll get a kick out of Lanchester’s sly ironies.”
- Jim Holt, best-selling author of Why Does the World Exist?

“A terrific primer on financial jargon... Anyone who wants to understand the nightly news should keep this volume at hand.”
- Publishers Weekly

“Lays out the case for financial literacy and then provides an essential glossary of terms for those who would like to achieve this happy state.”
- Sarah Lyall, New York Times
