Macroeconomics and The Global Business Environment, 2nd Edition

توضیحات

Understand the business of macroeconomics

Why is the standard of living in some countries so much higher than in others? Why does unemployment sometimes rise sharply in a short time and what can governments do about it? When, if ever, should governments borrow to finance spending?

Written with a strong global business focus, Miles and Scott’s Macroeconomics and the Global Business Environment, Second Edition examines fascinating, real-world economic issues, shows why these issues matter, and uses them as an entry point into advanced economic theory. Throughout, the authors present technical material clearly and accessibly, allowing you to develop a solid understanding of the global economy and how economists think about it.
