Perfectly concise introduction - and refresher
on 26 November 2009
This book is exactly what says it is: A concise guide to macro economics about what "managers, executives and students need to know". Nothing less, but, as a big advantage to other macro-intro books, nothing more either (i.e. no lenghty academic discussions or unreadable graphs). It includes some tables and a small number of graphs, but still it is much more enjoyable and readable than the macro economics textbook I studied in university. It covers most of the relevant stuff you need to know in order to make sense of the economics section in the paper: GDP, interest rates and inflation, the impact of expectations, plus some more, all in some 150 pages! Although I have a background in finance, my guess would be this is also a good introduction for the lay reader: Mr. Moss explains things very well. Definately a highly recommendable introduction!
