This book should be seen as the first building block of any Economics course. The content is organised in such a manner as to proceed logically towards a comprehensive understanding of macroeconomics. Having studied the book, the student will know what the repo rate, the CPIX, and core inflation are. The student will understand how government debt originates, how it is financed, what its impact on financial markets is, and much more. This book serves as a reference on which students can fall back in years to come and it will stimulate an interest in economics.
