When it comes to the US economy, it can be hard to keep up. After all, from soaring inflation rates to widespread tech layoffs to energy security in the face of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, there’s a lot going on.
And even if you can keep up, these topics aren’t exactly the easiest to get your head around.

To help, the learning app Blinkist has partnered with the Financial Times to create a series called “Making Sense of the US Economy.” In this series, experts will walk you through everything you need to know in just a few hours.

Financial Times Partners With German Knowledge App Blinkist

The series is narrated by Peter Spiegel, who’s the US managing editor of the Financial Times. It covers five key topics related to the US economy, including energy, inflation, markets, ESG, and technology.

For each topic, Spiegel chats with an expert and dives into useful background information, the latest developments, and what’s coming up in 2023.

There are infographics to make tricky topics easier to digest, and useful recaps at the end of each discussion, so you walk away remembering the most important points.

Learn about tricky topics from the Financial Times experts in around 15 minutes.

You can find the series on the Financial Times website and for free on Blinkist for your first 7 days.

“Blinkist caters to readers with more curiosity than time.”
