Writing a Book - Economics Explained

I am currently writing a book on economics. The target audience is:
  • People who want to understand economics and how it affects daily life.
  • Non-academic
Features
  • As much as possible it will avoid technical jargon but be accessible to non-students of economics.
  • It will answer commonly asked questions on economics (e.g. who does the government borrow from, why don't we print more money, does technological change cause unemployment)
  • Explaining headlines from the Economist and Financial Times

  • The hope is that it will explain economics to anyone who has never studied it (or studied many years ago)
  • In writing this book, I've noticed there is a degree of overlap with my basic A Level - Economics Revision Guide.
  • However, since there is no exam to pass, I feel much more freedom in writing the easiest way to explain.
  • Though non-academic it will be useful for students who want some summer reading before their university or A Level course begins.
I appreciate this won't be the first book which has attempted to explain the wonderful world of economics, but having taught a huge variety of students for 10 years and writing this blog has made it quite easy to write.

If you have any economic questions, you've always wanted answered I would love to hear them!

How politics effects economics, and the other way round.
Is politics all about economics?
How much of the economic theory's are really practical?

Hi,
I've been reading some your articles and find them well written and easy to understand.

What I would like to see in a new books on economics is real life examples explaining what the different economic indicators mean and how they are related (e.g. when one falls, the other rises and why).

Good luck!
