Book News Annotation:
Eleven essays geared to non-specialist readers by authors in both public and private sectors, comprise the first 150 pages of topics which include limits to global markets and what economics is not; the economies of Asia, Europe, and the U.S.; and future economics in terms of patterns of economic behavior, technology, and management trends. The essays are cross-referenced by terms in boldface to the book's 220-page dictionary of 180 entries that provide substantial synopses of figures and themes in economics. Beynon is a strategic and management consultant in television and new media, and an award- winning journalist in economics and business.
