How to Report Economic News

Since the global financial crisis in 2008, economics has dominated the news agenda, with issues such as migration, growth, trade and unemployment remaining hotly debated in the media. “How to Report Economic News” is an accessible introduction to our contemporary economic landscape and journalistic approaches to economic news coverage.

Chapters cover key topics including inflation, monetary policy, labour markets, fiscal policy and residential property markets. The book takes the UK as its main focus, but also explores European, US and Japanese markets. In addition, the title explores other major global topics such as the rise of the Brazil, Russia, India, China (BRIC) economies and the role of multinational organisations such as the International Monetary Fund.

By combining an overview of current financial systems and economic developments with instruction on economic reporting, this title is a valuable resource for students of journalism, trainee journalists, as well as anyone interested in learning more about modern economics.
