Summary

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.

Nicola Walton, an experienced financial journalist, presents a comprehensive guide to important economic indicators and how to report on them, as well as giving advice on identifying essential facts needed for any economic news story. The author also offers useful tips on journalistic writing that can help ensure articles are written clearly, concisely and with precision. To provide readers with further guidance, each chapter concludes with assignments to test your knowledge, a resource list for further reading and a glossary of key terms.

Chapters cover key topics including inflation, monetary policy, labour markets, fiscal policy and residential property markets. The book takes the UK economy as its main focus, but also explores European, US and Japanese markets in depth. In addition, the title explores other major global topics such as the rise of 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.
