Understanding Economics News

Bonds? Quantitative easing? Austerity? I've always struggled with understanding economics news so am looking for coverage of the global economic crisis which will help me get my head around it. I've recently discovered the BBC's Global Economy webpage which explains some of the main issues and key phrases in a concise and comprehensible way.

Here's the BBC's Global Economy webpage: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/special_reports/global_economy/
It's worth clicking on the short videos if like me you're a journalist who needs to have a reasonable understanding of what's going on and why.

I particularly like this video on the situation with the Euro: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-13991135
