Students are given in this book simple economic concepts that build a unifying analytic framework for interpretation. This framework enables students to critically evaluate and understand such things as why and how markets are set up as well as what role money and information play in the economy. Mishkin also provides step-by-step development of models that aid in student learning. To help students apply this knowledge to the everyday world, this text contains applications to financial events and policy issues. This new edition also prepares students to enter the global financial arena with an increased integration and focus on international events and issues. The major revision includes a more integrated approach to understanding financial structure and institutions that makes it easier to see the nature of the financial system and the pressure to innovate; a revised bank management chapter that brings in the consequences of the new rules on capital adequacy, and many new real-world applications.
