Zachary Karabell (2014): The Leading Indicators: A Short History of the Numbers That Rule Our World. Simon & Schuster; First Edition edition.

We are bombarded every day with numbers that tell us how we are doing, whether the economy is growing or shrinking, whether the future looks bright or dim. Gross national product, balance of trade, unemployment, inflation, and consumer confidence guide our actions, yet few of us know where these numbers come from, what they mean, or why they rule our world. In The Leading Indicators, Zachary Karabell tells the fascinating history of these indicators. They were invented in the mid-twentieth century to address the urgent challenges of the Great Depression, World War II, and the Cold War. They were rough measures— designed to give clarity in a data-parched world that was made up of centralized, industrial nations—yet we still rely on them today.

Simon Constable / Robert E. Wright (2011): The WSJ Guide to the 50 Economic Indicators That Really Matter: From Big Macs to "Zombie Banks," the Indicators Smart Investors Watch to Beat the Market (The Wall Street Journal). HarperBusiness.

In The Wall Street Journal Guide to the 50 Economic Indicators That Really Matter, the authors offer investors powerful new tools to guide them through the markets. Whether it's the VIX index (which tracks the level of anxiety among investors) or the Vixen index (which tracks the number of attractive waitresses in your hometown), this essential guide includes in-depth analyses of 50 valuable economic indicators, as well as what to watch for, what to do when movement happens, and the risk level involved in taking action. This must-have guide entertains and enlightens while offering essential advice on navigating the global economic climate.

Kenneth C. Land / Alex C. Michalos / M. Joseph Sirgy (2011): Handbook of Social Indicators and Quality of Life Research. Springer.

The aim of the Handbook is to create an overview of the field of Quality of Life studies in the early years of the 21st century that can be updated and improved upon as the field evolves and the century unfolds. Social indicators are statistical time series “…used to monitor the social system, helping to identify changes and to guide intervention to alter the course of social change”. Examples include unemployment rates, crime rates, estimates of life expectancy, health status indices, school enrollment rates, average achievement scores, election voting rates, and measures of subjective well-being such as satisfaction with life-as-a-whole and with specific domains or aspects of life.

The Economist (2005): The Economist Guide to Economic Indicators: Making Sense of Economics. Wiley

From the publishers of The Economist, the renowned international business weekly, this practical resource offers a detailed road map of all the major—and many of the less well-known—economic indicators in existence today. Explaining exactly what they are, why they are significant, how reliable they are, and—perhaps, most importantly—how to interpret them, it covers over 100 indicators, including: GDP, population, employment, unemployment, public expenditure, personal and disposable income, fixed investments, imports and exports, nominal exchange rates, money supply and stock, wages, earnings, and labor costs.
