Description

This book is a manageable guide to applied macroeconomics for first year business students. With a lively and engaging writing style, the text is less theoretical than those aimed at macroeconomic subject specialists. However it is a comprehensive introduction to the subject, demonstrating through real world examples the advantages to be gained from looking at the world through empirical data. The book sets out to provide a framework through which economic events can be analysed, and although written in a UK context, the text also provides a European - and where appropriate - global focus:show more
