Language and economics

This eBook discusses the twin concepts of language and economics, and studies how the language of economic discourse is used across various themes. Topics include a review of the use of great works of literature in an interdisciplinary, political economy framework, a review of "Devenir Soi" by Jacques Attali through the lenses of liberalism and Buddhism, the ideographic use of economic terms, a discursive construction of the recent European economic crisis in two political magazines and matter and embodiment in metaphors of money. Authors also discuss a communicative efficiency and effectiveness model for using metaphor and metonymy in financial news reporting, how discourses shape academic-political actors in crisis management policy, Angela Merkel´s discourse profile during the economic crisis and the European crisis policies and a linguistic approach to economic thought in the 17th and 18th centuries.
