Cómo funciona la economía para Dummies, by Leopoldo Abadía

This book approaches Economics from the perspective of someone who is not an economist.

Inflation, the role of banks, the impact of IMF decisions on your pocket, the economic crisis and its causes, unemployment, or tips for saving, are some of the topics covered in this publication. Everything is staged in a small made-up village, San Quirico, which is a small-scale representation of a global system that could be today's society.

¡Por fin! Un libro pensado por y para el vendedor, by Jesús María Fernández Acebes.

It's title (At last, a book by and for salespersons) already gives us a clue that this book is more focused on sales, but you can't forget that this is a fundamental field because, in the end, the survival of any company depends on it. That's why, in this book, the only leading character is the salesperson. On the one hand, it seeks to make the company aware of the relevance of this profile and the importance it should have within its structure. And on the other hand, it tries to transmit to the salesperson the value of his or her work, without which the company could not survive.

As you can see, a basic knowledge of Economics is within everybody's reach and should be a must for everyone. Understanding the fundamental pillars and some key concepts of this field can help you in an important way in your daily life, as well as in managing your home economy.
