Macroeconomics 4TH EDITION

Modeling Monetary Economies Bruce Champ Scott Freeman and Joseph Haslag

University of Missouri, Columbia

Designed to be used in advanced undergraduate or master’s courses in monetary economics, money and banking, international economics, or macroeconomics, this new edition builds on a simple, clear monetary model and applies this framework consistently to explain trade, finance, modern banking, and crises in complex modern economies. • Simplifies the economy by starting with two markets in general equilibrium, and students can develop comfort with two markets, then extend the structure by adding an additional market as needed • Shows where calculus could be used, but focuses on budget constraints and requires students to apply substitution method • Events like the 2007–8 Financial Crisis (Great Recession) are analyzed in the context of the model economy, therefore allowing students to see the fundamental economic trade-offs • Additional resources include PPT slides and a solutions manual containing end-of-chapter questions with answers

Macroeconomics Principles of Financial Economics Stephen F. LeRoy

University of California, Santa Barbara

and Jan Werner University of Minnesota

This new edition provides a rigorous yet accessible graduate-level introduction to financial economics, retaining its emphasis on the link between financial economics and equilibrium theory. Updates include more focus on portfolio choice and risk allocations. New chapters address infinite-time security markets, exploring, among other topics, the possibility of price bubbles. • Stresses the link between financial economics and equilibrium theory • The analysis aims to be comparable in rigor to the best work in microeconomics; at the same time, the authors provide ample discussion and examples that make the ideas readily understandable


With this new edition, LeRoy and Werner have solidified the standing of their Principles of Financial Economics as the ideal introduction to neoclassical asset pricing models.

Econometrics Dynamic Economic Analysis Deterministic Models in Discrete Time

Gerhard Sorger

Universität Wien, Austria

For advanced students in economics, this textbook provides a clear and concise introduction to dynamic economic theory and analysis. Sorger guides students step-by-step through the most popular model structures and solution concepts, from the simplest dynamic economic models to complex problems of dynamic general equilibrium frameworks. • Analysis is demonstrated through 75 worked examples that offer step-by-step solutions to the models • A further 64 exercises allow students to self-assess their understanding, with solutions (password-protected) available online for instructors • Focuses purely on deterministic models in discrete time and avoids the more complicated stochastic and continuous-time models that students find confusing

This book offers a comprehensive vision of economic dynamics suitable for graduate students and professionals alike. Gerhard Sorger is a leading researcher with a flair for presenting mathematically challenging theories carefully and rigorously. …There is no other single book readily accessible in the economics literature covering the same wide range of deterministic dynamics and optimization theories with detailed illustrations of those theories in action. It is accessible to students engaged in a self-study program for students engaging with dynamical systems for the first time. Better yet, it offers the topics and treatments for a course in dynamics.” Robert A. Becker, Indiana University, Bloomington

Industrial Organization Modern Economic Regulation An Introduction to Theory and Practice

Christopher Decker University of Oxford

Drawing from the most recent work on economic regulation, this book examines the key physical and economic characteristics of four public utility industries (electricity, gas, water and telecommunications), and the impact of these characteristics on regulatory arrangements. Suitable for students and practitioners with little prior knowledge of economic regulation. • This is the first comprehensive book on economic regulation in two decades, and the most up-to-date textbook on the subject • Focuses on the basic rationales and ‘first principles’ of regulation, avoiding highly technical and abstract models and mathematical treatments • Most academic work on economic regulation is published in diverse and specialized academic journals and monographs – this is an accessible and coherent synthesis of these different strands of information

… a must-read for students and practitioners of economic regulation. This book provides an excellent overview of the extensive literature covering the theory and practice of modern economic regulation of public utilities. It is written in a style which will be readily accessible to those new to the area. It highlights lessons learnt particularly from the experience of major economies which have introduced restructuring reforms.” David Cousins, AM, Monash University, Victoria

A European Perspective

Jakob de Haan

Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, The Netherlands

Sander Oosterloo

Ministry of Finance, The Netherlands

and Dirk Schoenmaker Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam

Written for undergraduate and graduate students of finance, economics and business, this successful textbook examines and explains financial markets, infrastructures and institutions from a European perspective. The third edition features greater discussion of the financial and Euro crises and provides wider international coverage of countries outside the European Union. • The text is clearly signposted and presented with learning objectives, boxes for key concepts and theories, end-of-chapter summaries and suggestions for further reading • A companion website features exercises for students, and password-protected figures, tables, solutions and PowerPoint lecture slides for instructors • Covers both European and national financial systems, leading students to a deep understanding of integrated and non-integrated markets

A quarter of a century ago, the European financial system consisted of segmented national markets and institutions. The process of creating a single unified system has made considerable progress but still has some way to go. This book provides an excellent account of why this process is important, the current situation, and how it will proceed in the future. It is very well suited for its target audience of advanced undergraduates and Masters students and will be useful to all those interested in the topic. I highly recommend it.” Franklin Allen, Imperial College London

This is a clear, comprehensive and incisive look at Europe today and its relevance to global business in the twenty-first century. The author is both eloquent in explaining even the more difficult concepts and judicious in forming conclusions about where Europe stands today in the globalized world. He lucidly explains the leading scholarship in the field and, as importantly, pinpoints its relevance to on-the-ground business practice within the European context. This book will be of great interest to academics, researchers and global business practitioners. It should become the standard textbook for students of modern European business.” Sanford L.

This is the first textbook on international business strategy that combines analytical rigour and true managerial insight on the functioning of large multinational enterprises (MNEs). With unique commentary on 48 seminal articles, the book shows how these can be applied to businesses engaged in international expansion, especially in high-distance markets. • Offers a new perspective into international business strategy that combines analytical rigour and managerial insight on the functioning of large multinational enterprises and provides greater coverage of emerging markets • Students are supported by improved learning features including ‘management takeaways’, key lessons that can be applied to MNEs, and 30 case studies which illustrate key points • Online resources available, including weblinks, detailed lecture slides for each chapter, figures from the book, answers to case study questions and additional MCQs

Two things make Alain Verbeke’s book stand out from other textbooks.

Second, it is truly integrative, presenting a framework in the first half of the book that is consistently used in all subsequent chapters and applications.” Sjoerd Beugelsdijk, University of Groningen, The Netherlands
