Top customer reviews
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.
Lots of information
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
Wish I could return it
