This is where you can find out a little bit more about the two books I’ve written, 50 Economics Ideas (Quercus, 2009) and The Summit (Little, Brown, 2014)


thesummitcoverThe Summit (The Biggest Battle of the Second World War – fought behind closed doors) is the definitive story of the Bretton Woods conference. I know that sounds a little dry on the face of it, but I promise you it’s not!

‘Brimming with the sort of vivid details that make the past come alive, The Summit is both an impressive work of scholarship and an absolute delight to read’ – Liaquat Ahamed, author of Lords of Finance

‘Who would have thought that an account of an economic summit could be so absorbing? But it was no ordinary summit and Ed Conway’s is an exceptional account’ – Evan Davis, BBC presenter and author of Made in Britain

‘Brilliantly researched, and hugely entertaining, this is an essential book about one of the most important economic events of the twentieth century’ – Keith Lowe, author of Savage Continent

Available on Amazon UK, Amazon US and all good bookstores from May 29 2014

And the other book:

50ideas1-534x60050 Economics Ideas (you really need to know). A user’s guide to economics – everything from supply & demand and interest rates to financial crises and globalisation. A whistlestop tour through all the concepts you’ll need to bluff your way through any economic conversation.

“Attractively presented and… pleasurable and rewarding to read” – The Mail on Sunday

“Essential for anyone keen to make sense of the causes, ramifications and solutions to the current crisis and should be on the desk of everyone working in the City” – The Daily Telegraph

“Commendably comprehensive and concise” – David Smith, The Sunday Times

  1. Dear Ed,

    Wondered if you would like to have a look at “50 Economics Classics: The Greatest Books Distilled” (Hachette), my book to be published in May 2017 that will provide commentaries on the great writings in the discipline, from Adam Smith to Schumpeter to Thomas Piketty, as well as quite a few recent works that offer special insights.

    Kind regards,

  2. Hi Ed,
    Have you thought of writing about tax avoidence by multinational companies resident in the U.K.?
    Google uk in 2011 made over$11 million profit and transferred it
    to Bermuda thereby avoiding paying taxes much against the wishes
    of the government.
    This money denies shareholders their dividend and prevents the
    Government from much needed finance for public services.
    All of this profit was made in the UK where sales are generated from a
    population of 60 million people.
    HMRC could introduce a tax change that all sales from Google UK
    and not through an office in Ireland where actual sales are NOT generated.

    I would be interested in your comments.

    Yours. John Taylor
