The Undercover Economist Strikes Back: How to Run or Ruin an Economy

A million readers bought The Undercover Economist to get the lowdown on how economics works on a small scale, in our everyday lives. Since then, economics has become big news. Crises, austerity, riots, bonuses - all are in the headlines all the time. But how does this large-scale economic world really work? What would happen if we cancelled everyone's debt? How do you create a job? Will the BRIC countries take over the world? Asking - among many other things - what the future holds for the Euro, why the banks are still paying record bonuses and where government borrowing will take us, in The Undercover Economist Strikes Back, Tim Harford returns with his trademark clarity and wit to explain what's really going on - and what it means for us all.

Tim Harford

Tim Harford (born 1973) is an English economist and journalist, residing in London. He is the author of two economics books, presenter of BBC television series "Trust Me, I'm an Economist", and writer of a humorous weekly column called "Dear Economist" for "The Financial Times", in which he uses economic theory to attempt to solve readers' personal problems. His other FT column, "The Undercover Economist", is syndicated in Slate magazine.

Harford studied at the University of Oxford, gaining a BA and then an MPhil in Economics in 1998. He joined the "Financial Times" in 2003 on a fellowship in commemoration of the business columnist Peter Martin. He continued to write his column after joining the International Finance Corporation in 2004, and re-joined the "Financial Times" as economics leader writer in April 2006. He is also a member of the newspaper's editorial board.

In October 2007, Harford replaced Andrew Dilnot on the BBC Radio 4 series "More or Less".
