An ingeniously conceived tour of the global economy and all its key components, illuminated one by one in 99 large-scale, full-color infographics
The economy is a complex, world-spanning, layer-upon-layer-upon-layer behemoth: One could argue that almost every aspect of our lives is connected to the realms of business and finance. And yet few of us truly understand it--even the world's foremost economists can't seem to agree on how it runs.
The Global Economy as You've Never Seen It presents 99 brilliant infographics that everyone can understand. From start-ups to monopolies, from trade agreements to theory, author Thomas Ramge and infographic specialist Jan Schwochow bring every facet of the economic web to life.
Economics connects us all, from what we buy, to how we buy it, who made it, and where. See the economy differently--and the world.
