English presentation

Orkana Forlag/Orkana publishing house was established in The Lofoten Islands in 1992. We publish 20 – 30 new titles per year, mainly Norwegian and translated fiction and Norwegian non-fiction, both for adults and children. Our non-fiction publications cover thematic areas such as history, cultural history, regional politics, the environment and social sciences. We have accreditation as publishers of academic texts, which means that we have an Academic Board of Editors and a wide panel of peer reviewers. Thus, our publications range from penetrating scientific analyses to novels suitable for the general reader.

 

We have recently started collaboration with publishing houses on the Faroe Islands and Iceland, and we would like to expand our range of translated titles. Our list of authors includes prominent names like Norwegians Per Fugelli, Einar Niemi and Liv Marie Austrem, Icelander Thorarinn Leifsson and Faraoe Islander Bardur Oskarsson.

What is Economy? Facts and Reflections

What is Economy? Facts and Reflections
Hva er økonomi? Fakta og funderinger

Economy is to be found everywhere – in our everyday life and in the society of which we are a part. Even so, many people find economy difficult to understand. And they are quite right. Economy is difficult. The book What is Economy? Facts and Reflections shows that economy is useful. It can even be fun!

The book provides practical tips on how children and young people can earn money for themselves and have control over how much they use. It explains how the child’s personal economy is related to the world around them and also illustrates important aspects of economy in society. The book answers questions such as:
• How can you earn money yourself? What is a budget and how do you use it? How do you shop safely on the Internet?
• Why is money valuable? What is interest?
• Why do we pay tax? What do banks do? What is consumer power? What does it really mean to be poor?

What is Economy? Facts and Reflections has been written for children aged 12 and older. It is also suitable for younger children and, not least, for parents, teachers and other adults who wish to talk with children and young people about economy. The book is written in a simple and easy-to-understand language. It is richly illustrated with drawings and photos.
