Man vs. Markets by Paddy Hirsch of NPR's "Marketplace" is economics explained, pure and simple, for the layperson who wouldn't know a "bond" from an "option," and who believes that a "future" is when we'll all have flying cars. Here is an illuminating, insightful, and wonderfully witty journey of discovery through the often confusing financial markets, offering clear, relatable explanations and definitions of the system's various instruments, yet less simplistically than the popular...for Dummies series. Man vs. Markets is a must-listen handbook for everyday investors, serious students of finance and economics, and everyone who wants to understand what they're reading when they open their newspapers to the business section.
Paddy Hirsch of NPR’s "Marketplace" provides an accessible and colorful explanation of financial systems for the layperson who knows little more than basic economics. Narrator Dean Sluyter’s confident performance will reassure those who might otherwise be intimidated, and he narrates with great timing and aplomb the amusing analogies that Hirsch employs to explain financial concepts, including how a family's attempts to order a Thanksgiving turkey may be likened to derivative products. Listeners will be pleasantly surprised to find themselves laughing along while learning more about economic systems.
