HOW TO SPEAK MONEY

What the Money People Say and What It Really Means

By John Lanchester. This down-to-earth glossary of economic jargon includes explanations for more than 300 common words and phrases from "AAA rating" and "amortization" to "yield curve" and "zombie bank." Additional chapters motivate readers to understand that financial literacy is important because, in so many aspects of life, "the story behind the story turned out to be about money." Topics range from the terms and conditions of personal bank accounts to the evasions of bankers appearing before Congress. Grades 9 and up. Index. Suggested readings. Norton. 268 pages. ©2014.
