This is THE outstanding Banking & Finance text on the market.

The emphasis lies on a clear explanation of the fundamentals : understanding the structure of the balance sheet of a Central Bank and the commercial banks, for example, and identifying simple mathematical relationships between the balance sheet variables. eg money supply growth formulae, PSBR etc.

The policy implications of Central Bank conduct are also thoroughly explained and the sections on 'comparative banking' are revealing.

Excellent value for money, and I highly recommend this text, written by gifted economists.

Pros:

Lots of information

Cons:

Written in a way that is hard to understand, lacks engagement - people would argue this is for 'intellects' but other books provide larger text, more interesting examples and provide better explanations

Barely any change from other editions

The European text could EASILY be added to other books in the series

Conclusion:

Wish I could return it
