Review:

Any business studies student who has little or no understanding of economic principles could make use of this book. It uses easy language to introduce technical phrases. Each chapter ends with a helpful conclusion, organised and graded questions and a well-thought out, thorough list of
additional readings. All the expected areas of the economics curriculum are covered. Rod Gunn, The Times Higher Education Supplement, February 2000

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1999. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Business Economics is aimed at business students who need a solid, but not excessively theoretical, introduction to economics which focuses on the contribution economics can make to the study of business policy. In addition to the standard economics of supply, demand, costs, and competition, the text places special emphasis on specifically business-oriented issues such as transaction costs, rents, sustainable competitive advantage, the resource-based view of the firm, corporate architecture, corporate governance, diversification and acquisitions, an outline of macroeconomics, forecasting, and an introduction to public policy. The text has been structured closely to meet existing business courses, and a section in the introduction recommends particular permutations of chapters to suit the different courses available. Each chapter contains an introduction covering the key concepts used, a further reading list, discussion questions and a conclusion summarizing what the student should have learnt. The book is extensively illustrated with figures, tables and other displayed material, and simple algebra will be all that is required by way of mathematical understanding. Business students will find this book is precisely tailored to meet their needs for successful study. Bookseller Inventory # AOP9780198775249
