Edition 1 Theories, Applications, and Policies
By Cristina Terra

Publication Date: 19 Jun 2015
Description

Principles of International Finance and Open Economy Macroeconomics: Theories, Applications, and Policies presents a macroeconomic framework for understanding and analyzing the global economy from the perspectives of emerging economies and developing countries.

Unlike most macroeconomic textbooks, which typically emphasize issues about developed countries while downplaying issues related to developing countries, this book emphasizes problems in emerging economies, including those in Latin American countries.

It also explains recent developments in international finance that are essential to a thorough understanding of the effects and implications of the recent financial crisis.

Key Features

  • Concentrates on developing country perspectives on International Finance and the Economy, including those in Latin American countries
  • Provides case studies and publicly available data allowing readers to explore theories and their applications
  • Explains recent developments in international finance that are essential to a thorough understanding of the effects and implications of the recent financial crisis
  • Proposes a unified mathematical model accessible to those with basic mathematical skills
