Economics and the Business Environment

Second Edition

John Sloman

Economics and the Business Environment is unique in introducing the essential principles of microeconomics and macroeconomics and applying them to the world of business. Consideration is also given to wider, topical business issues, such as business strategy, corporate social responsibility, ethics and the state of the global environment in which we live today. 

Classic Sloman features:

  • Key ideas explained in context and cross-referenced throughout the book.

  • Technical terms defined in the margin of the page where they first appear.

  • Pause-for-thought questions, integrated throughout, encourage reflective learning.

  • A vast range of cases and applied material demonstrate how economics can be used to understand real business situations, including case studies on the London Olympics, investing in Chinaand companies such as Samsung, Dyson, Body Shop and The Gap.

  • Direct and straight-forward writing style with short paragraphs to aid rapid comprehension.

What’s new:

  • Realigned into four parts with global business environment coverage integrated further into the text.

  • New and extended coverage of STEEPLE analysis, the application of game theory to business situations, transactions cost analysis, the economics of entrepreneurship, business ethics and corporate social responsibility and the competitive advantage of nations.

  • Captions added to figures and diagrams to explain their properties and to highlight key features.

  • The list of business issues covered at the start of each chapter is now accompanied by a chapter map showing the topics to be covered and their respective pages.

  • 21 new boxes included in this edition to provide further case-study material.

As its new title illustrates, Economics and the Business Environment, now in its second edition, is ideal for both introductory courses in economics taught from a business perspective and business environment modules with an economic underpinning.
