Book Description

15 July 2009 0321649362 978-0321649362 9

This is a Pearson Global Edition.  The Pearson editorial team worked closely with educators around the world to include content especially relevant to students outside the United States.


The Economics of Money, Banking, and Financial Markets set the standard for money and banking courses when it published in its first edition, and it continues to be the worldwide market leader.

The historic economic events and financial crises of late 2008 have changed the entire landscape of money and banking. Having just served as Governor of the Federal Reserve, only Mishkin has the unique insider's perspective needed to present the current state of money and banking and explain the latest debates and issues for today’s students.

By applying a unified analytical framework to the models, Mishkin makes theory intuitive for students, and the rich array of current, real-world events keeps students motivated. Authoritative, comprehensive, and flexible, the text is easy to integrate into a wide variety of syllabi, and its ancillaries provide complete support when teaching the course.

For professors who teach with less emphasis on monetary theory and prefer to focus more time on financial institutions, the Business School Edition is the ideal alternative. Learn more here.

MyEconLab® is available for the text, so students can work end-of-chapter problems online and their work is automatically graded and tracked in your online gradebook. To see how instructors can use MyEconLab in their courses, click here. For more information or to request access, visit MyEconLab.

–J. Robert Gillette, University of Kentucky
“Mishkin’s textbook is informative, well-written, and approachable by both economics majors and non-majors.”
–Gabriele Camera, Purdue University
“Mishkin is by far the best book in the field. It is complete and exhaustive.”
–Joao Ricardo Faria, University of Texas—Dallas

“Mishkin is by far the most complete and concise reference on the market for students taking financial economics and monetary policy courses.”
–J. Reynolds, Northern Illinois University

–Phillip Lane, Fairfield University

“I have my students telling me at the end of the semester [that] they have enjoyed reading the book.”
–Alla A. Melkumian, Western Illinois University

“[Mishkin] is relevant, challenging, and interesting. It provides clear explanations of monetary theory and policy. It is up-to-date. The Federal Reserve material features an insider’s perspective.”

“The use of economic analysis gives students a deeper understanding and attracts their interest. The extensive presentation of charts appeals to visual learners and the associated PowerPoint slides give instructors useful visual aids for classroom lectures.”
–Fiona Mclachlan, Manhattan College
