Solution for 29 August cryptic crossword clue

I’m one involved with cost (9)
Solution – Economist

A relatively rare sort of clue today – known to aficionados as "literally so".  The clue isn't split into parts as is usually the case but all adds up to the solution – but with a twist in that there is also some word play involved.

So someone who works in the area of money and cost can be an "economist" – also if you mix up the letter in "I'm one" and "cost" you get to "economist as well"  - so "involved with" is here in 2 capacities – tricky, huh?
