    Just been watching random youtube vids about billionaire bankers hedge funds and all that junk and makes no sense to me the jargon they use but interested to know more.

    Where should I begin in terms of searches and reading to understand what they are on about?

    The following are the best books on the topic that I am aware of:

    Freakonomics
    Super Freakonomics
    The Why Axis: Hidden Motives and the Undiscovered Economics of Everyday Life

    Those three will really change the way you view the world

    Economics For Dummies - Sean Masaki Flynn
    Basic Economics: A Common Sense Guide to the Economy - Thomas Sowell
    A Concise Guide to Macroeconomics - David A. Moss

    Wrong place to put this thread btw, should probably be in the lounge.

    I would suggest you read
    Mankiw - Principles of Economics

    it starts from the very basic to the very end of the macro economics which persists today...plus the examples given in the book, you will be easily able to relate them with the current life situations!
