100 Notes on Basic Financial Knowledge
Financial knowledge is essential to understanding economic movements, including the sharp appreciation of the yen, the US budget deficit, the crisis of the euro economy's collapse, and the overheating of China's real estate bubble. These are often thought to be difficult subjects, but the individual concepts are by no means esoteric. The essence of even derivatives is something that can be understood with simple common sense knowledge.
This book introduces 100 notes on carefully selected basic knowledge of finance. While touching on the role of finance, the social meaning of financial institutions, and the characteristics of individual financial products, this book firmly covers the concepts necessary to financially understand what is happening in the world. There is no doubt that it will help the reader to look ahead of the chaotic global economy.
