Dear all, Could you please help me out with a difficulty in the novel by Peter Mountford 'A Young Man’s Guide to Late Capitalism'? Here are the adjacent phrases: The Calloway Group seeks a full-time contractor as a political analyst for the Latin America region. Responsibilities include making regular trips to Latin America, interviewing corporate and political leaders, writing reports and briefs on a range of financial issues in the region. Areas of investigation include: individual corporate, sector/regional, commodities, macro, forex. What puzzles me here is punctuation. I hope the phrase means: 'Areas of investigation include individual and corporate analysis of regional commodities by sectors [of local economy], analysis of macroeconomics and foreign currency exchange rates.' I'm afraid it is no so. Could you please explain the real meaning of the phrase in question in the simplest way you can (I do not make head or tail of economy).
