This book conducts a campaign to try and stave off the contamination of the English language. Instead of asking for the 'time-frame', ask 'how long will it take'. Let's call a spade a spade. Here's to plain English!

On starting his career in business journalism, Murray gave the training a miss and was soon churning out figures and talking about EBITDA, and such. What he hadn't counted on was the need to learn a 'foreign' language to get by. Where once there were plain links, there are now connectivity, synergies and partnerships. We have to speak jargon-laden English if we are to be fully paid-up members of the global economic club. Now a days simple English is as rare as an Irish heatwave! The Financial Regulator has a team of people whose task is to translate the language of the banking world in to understandable English. n starting his career in business journalism, Murray gave the training a miss and was soon churning out figures and talking about EBITDA, and such.
