Unlike other Money and Banking texts, where the discussion of the macroeconomy is left to the end in a confusing blur of IS-LM and AS-AD models, Brandl’s MONEY, BANKING, FINANCIAL MARKETS AND INSTITUTIONS examines the macroeconomy early. The author does so in a clear concise manner using only the AS-AD framework. With the recent economic crisis as a backdrop, the book demonstrates links between the macroeconomic course work that students have just completed and your money and banking course. While other similar books gloss over important topics, such as money markets and investments, this text examines these markets and entities using an interesting, thought-provoking approach. The author goes beyond merely describing these market and institutions to bring these concepts to life by examining the economic foundations of these markets and the controversies within them. Accompanying MindTap® with Aplia™ online tools further enhance the book’s student-oriented approach.
