Description

International Monetary and Financial Economics covers the key concepts of both international financial economics and open economy macroeconomics in an accessible, user-friendly manner. It concentrates on diagrammatic and conceptual explanations, and relates the material to the

many current business and policy issues appearing in leading publications such as The Economist, The Wall Street Journal, and Financial Times. The book thoroughly covers the full range of international money and finance topics, including international finance, international money and banking and open-economy macroeconomics, illustrating how all three areas help us understand the world economic and financial system. It also integrates policy making and policy options throughout, as well as coverage of international organizations and their role in policy formation.
