    Description

    Day To Day Economics is a book that aims to explain the subject of economics in simple terms for the benefit the common man.

    Summary Of The Book

    This book, Day to Day Economics, explains all the concepts and rules of economics to the readers in a way that is easy for them to understand. It is a useful book for those who have no previous knowledge of basic economic principles.

    The vagaries in a country’s economy affect the earning power of the common man, their spending power, the prices of goods, the employment conditions, the business conditions and so much more. Yet, not many people really understand the factors that drive a country’s economy. Day to Day Economics starts with an introductory chapter that provides a bird’s eye view of everything the book covers.

    The first chapter explains economic institutions, the different functions of the government and private sectors, the need to delineate which spheres one shall control and which spheres one shall be allowed to function in. The second chapter addresses government budgets and deficits and how it affects the common man. It explains the various aspects of the budget, taxation and budget deficits. The next chapter takes a look at stock markets and banks. It explains how fluctuations in the stock market affects the economy. It also goes into the functioning and governance of the banking industry.

    The fourth chapter examines the concept of free trade and the role played by institutions like the World Trade Organization. The next chapter addresses a topic that will resonate the most with readers, the increasing prices of essential goods, the concept of inflation, the reason behind the rising price of food. The sixth chapter looks at various factors that affect an economy’s growth and recession. The seventh chapter looks at fiscal and monetary policies and explains why the economic growth of the country has been experiencing seems lopsided. The final chapter then brings it all together and summarizes the concepts and provides some final observations.

    Day to Day Economics includes a number of illustrative examples and relevant case studies. It also contains a glossary of important economic terms and definitions at the end of every chapter.

    This book is a concise and easy to follow introduction to economics. It helps the readers understand the fundamental principles on which a country's economy functions and the factors that affect the economy. The book can be used by professionals and students.

    Great read for amateur Economics enthusiasts

    If you're one of those people who want help to make sense of all the Economics/Finance jargon thrown at us (especially in the new channels/news papers), this book is does the job very well.

    Topics such as Inflation, budgets, deficits, taxes, boom and bust phenomenon,etc are covered very well and in mostly simple English. I don't think one can write in simpler words without compromising on the quality of the content.

    Totally worth the purchase. I can only wish that this book covered even m...

    Worth read

    This is the good read to know and understand the day-in day-out economics we scroll through media (any kind). Sometimes we do not understand what it means and what's a impact, it help you understand. Clear the basics of economics.

    Brilliant Book

    This book is a gem. Professor Deodhar has used very simple language and explained common terms in economics with ease. I recommend this book to everyone regardless of which field they are in, because, as responsible citizens, we should have some basic concepts clear about national and world economy. Indian examples and case studies and the "in box" concepts in the book make the process of understanding very simple and loving.

He has explained all the concepts which are ought to be known by everyone.Each concept is explained with relevant examples. Even the examples given are not too complicated and are taken from our daily activities. This book definitely helps people to inculcate interest on our Economy.

    GO buy a 12th std economics textbook instead!

    Honestly i found this book one of the most boring books on economics, it was more like i was studying for my 12th std board exam all over again. Lets put it this way the book is full of definition and hardly any cases just go to investopedia if you want a definition!

    Day to Day Economics

    This is an excellent book for those who do not understand the meanings and significance of the many economic terms (inflation, fiscal defecit etc)used in the newspapers these days. The examples and analogies used to explain different terms are excellent. Am sure after reading this book, nobody will call economics a dry subject.
    The language is simple and devoid of any jargons which makes this book a must read for those trying to come to terms with day to day economics.
