The Economist Numbers Guide - Richard Stutely
By Josh Kaufman
Business analysis is a subject of many concepts: time-value of money, discounted cash flow valuation, amortization, depreciation, etc. The Economist Numbers Guide is a handy reference that will help you use these concepts appropriately and explain them clearly to your colleagues.
The Economist Numbers Guide is a short, but comprehensive book that contains everything you need to know about business mathematics. Inside, you’ll find information on arithmetic, notation, financial structures, investment analysis, inflation, interest, distributions, graphing, forecasting, sampling, testing, decision trees, Markov chains, and even advanced subjects like linear programming. You’ll be hard pressed to find a business situation that requires math this book doesn’t cover well.
The Economist Numbers Guide is the reference book I rely on to ensure I’m using business analysis techniques properly and explaining them clearly to other people. If business analysis is part of your job, I highly recommend keeping this book close at hand.
