About the Author

Rupal Patel and Jack Meaning are economists at the Bank of England, the UK's central bank. Founded in 1694, the Bank of England was created to 'promote the public good and benefit of the people'. How it does so has changed a bit since then, but the Bank still plays a crucial role in the economy - printing money, setting interest rates and regulating the financial sector. Since 2017, the Bank's staff have been on a mission to get outside the City of London and promote economic literacy across the UK- whether by delivering talks in schools, running Citizens' Panels on people's economic experiences, or, now, publishing this nifty primer on economics.

Economics affects every aspect of our lives, but it can often seem like an inaccessible, off-puttingly jargon-laden subject. This is the guide you need!

The authors want to inspire a new generation of economists, both at school level and among older students . . . If Patel and Meaning could help turn that tide, they will have performed a great public service. -- Alex Brummer * Daily Mail *
