World Economies

Series Description

A new series of concise modern economic histories of the world’s key economies. Each book provides authoritative analysis that explains how a country’s economy works, why it has the shape it has, and what distinct challenges it faces. Alongside discussion of the key economic indicators of economic growth, the coverage extends to areas less often seen in the traditional economic narrative, such as well-being, gender and social inequality, and corruption and the black economy, to provide a fresh and more rounded understanding of the wealth of nations, particularly in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis.
