about this item
Financial Journalism covers the essentials of finance, business and economics in a user friendly yet authoritative way. It explains key concepts and specialised terms in plain English and draws on the expertise of some of the best known financial journalists in Britain.
In this text, Marie Kinsey addresses three main questions: what is financial journalism, how does it work, and what do you need to know to be a journalist confident of working on a financial or business story?
Financial Journalism is divided into five sections, each covering the main interlocking areas of financial journalism and beginning with an exposition of the main financial institutions and how financial journalism developed:
- The world of financial journalism
- Reporting economics
- Reporting the markets
- Reporting business
- Reporting personal finance
Each section contains a number of closely linked chapters with case studies and interviews with financial journalists, and ends with suggestions for further reading and a jargon checklist. The final chapter of each section will involve one or more case studies of how financial journalists choose to cover stories in that particular area, and the book concludes with a chapter on careers in financial journalism and how to get in.
