This is the third volume of The Collected Works of Arthur Seldon',
which translates the often obscure jargon and technical terminology
of economics into direct, plain English understandable by both the
academic and the layperson. The most abstruse topic becomes clear
as he conveys the sense in ordinary language, without loss of
meaning through oversimplification. The volume covers a wide range
of economic thought and includes every relevant term that the
average person might encounter in a written or other treatment of
the subject. In addition to conveying a sense of how economic
thought has evolved over the centuries, the Dictionary stimulates
and challenges readers in its questioning of conventional wisdom
about government intervention and manipulation of economies. It too
has "stood the test of time"; nearly thirty years after the second
edition and forty years after the first, this book still engages
readers -- economists and nonprofessionals alike. An indispensable
reference for laypeople and for academics. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Colin

Emeritus Professor. For many years he has been associated with the
London-based Institute of Economic Affairs, and from 1992 to 2002
