  • Delivering the most current coverage available, all chapters in the 13th edition have been thoroughly updated to include recent developments in international financial markets as well as the latest tools used to manage a multinational corporation.
  • In Chapter 2, "International Flow of Funds," the balance of payments accounting coverage has been revised to make it consistent with the recent format used by the U.S. government for reporting specific accounts.
  • Chapter 6, "Government Influence on Exchange Rates," now includes sections on black markets for currencies as well as the recent challenges of the European Central Bank to stabilize financial conditions in the eurozone.
  • Chapter 8, "Relationships among Inflation, Interest Rates, and Exchange Rates," has been reworked to synthesize the relationships between the Fisher effect, purchasing power parity, and the international Fisher effect.
  • Chapter 10, "Measuring Exposure to Exchange Rate Fluctuations," includes an improved flow between sections and gives more emphasis to the value at risk method for assessing exchange rate exposure.
  • Chapter 14, "Multinational Capital Budgeting," now includes more detailed information about how managers (and students) can use electronic spreadsheets to facilitate the international capital budgeting process and apply sensitivity analysis.
  • Each part ends with an Integrative Problem based on concepts covered within chapters contained in that part -- helping students build on the skills they are learning.
