Praise for "International Economic Indicators and Central Banks": "Anne Picker's "International Economic Indicators and Central Banks" is a tour de force. It brings together a wealth of information, explanation, and guidance, which has hitherto only been available from disparate and frequently obscure sources, and does so with great clarity and authority. It will be an invaluable resource not only for investors but for all others involved in the fields of finance and economics." - Donald R. Anderson, OBE FRSE (UK), International Economics Advisor, formerly chief economist, Courtaulds Group. "Picker's book provides a comprehensive and up to date guide to the workings of key central banks, and to the economic data that informs their thinking and policy formation. The book should be required reading for those with more than a passing interest in financial markets and monetary policy formation." - George Worthington, Chief Economist, Asia Pacific, Thomson IFR (Australia). ""International Economic Indicators and Central Banks" is an invaluable guide for anyone doing business overseas or investing in international markets. It is thorough and precise enough for professional economists yet readily accessible to business people and investors. Anne Picker is not only an excellent communicator who demystifies central bank operations and technical economic indicators; she is also a top notch economist with extensive experience in analyzing them. Don't read any international economic analysis without this volume close at hand." - David A. Levy, Chairman, The Jerome Levy Forecasting Center.
