Economics, Business & Investing » Finance
Finance makes the world go around and it’s really important that everyone understands at least the basics. We have two introductory interviews on finance, one is an Understanding High Finance reading list with journalist and novelist John Lanchester, who taught himself all about it. The other is with Andrew Lo, a leading light in the field and a professor who teaches finance at MIT. Read all the books they recommend (all of them accessible) and you’ll be well on the way to knowing what it’s all about.
There is, of course, a lot of overlap with investment, but if you’re looking for books specifically on investment, please click on our ‘How to Invest’ section.
Financial markets periodically have crises (unfortunately). All our interviews on financial crises can be found here.
