International Economics

https://www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=1293569&fc=GB&cjsku=1293569...
There is no lack of good international economics textbooks ranging from the elementary to the advanced, so that an additional drop in this ocean calls for an explanation. In the present writer's opinion, there seems still to be room for a textbook which can be used in both undergraduate and graduate courses, and which contains a wide range of topics, including those usually omitted from other textbooks. These are the intentions behind the present book, which is an outcrop from undergraduate and graduate courses in international economics that the author has been holding at the University of Rome since 1974, and from his on­ going research work in this field. Accordingly the work is organized as two-books­ in-one by distributing the material between text and appendices. The treatment in the body of this book is directed to undergraduate students and is mainly confined to graphic analysis and to some elementary algebra, but it is assumed that the reader will have a good knowledge of basic microeconomics and macroeconomics (so that the usual review material on production functions, indifference curves, standard Keynesian model, etc. , etc. has been omitted) . Each chapter is followed by an appendix in which the treatment is mainly mathematical, and where (i) the topics explained in the text are treated at a level suitable for advanced undergraduate or first-year graduate students and (ii) generalizations and/or topics not treated in the text (including some of those at the frontiers of research) are formally examined.

Financial Economics

https://www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=2064703&fc=GB&cjsku=2064703...
Financial Economics, by Frank Fabozzi, Ted Neave, and Gaofu Zhou, presents an introduction to basic financial ideas through a strong grounding in microeconomic theory. This calculus based text explores the theoretical framework for analyzing the decisions by individuals and managers of firms, an area which is coming to both financial economics and microeconomics. It also explores the interplay of these decisions on the prices of financial assets.   The authors provide rigorous coverage aimed at assisting the undergraduate and masters-level students to better understand the principles and practical application of financial economic theory. In addition, the book serves as a supplemental reference for doctoral students in economics and finance, as well as for practitioners who are interested in knowing more about the theory and intuition behind many coming practices in finance.   In short, the book focuses on economic principles and on putting these principles to work in the various fields of finance - financial management, investment management, risk management, and asset and derivatives pricing.

Development Economics

https://www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=95649415&fc=GB&cjsku=95649415...
Development Economics: theory and Practice provides students and practitioners with the perspectives and the tools they need to think analytically and critically about the current major economic development issues in the world. Alain de Janvry and Elisabeth Sadoulet identify seven key dimensions of development; growth, poverty, vulnerability, inequality, basic needs, sustainability, and quality of life, and use them to structure the contents of the text. This book gives a historical perspective on the evolution of thought in development. It uses theory and empirical analysis to present readers with a full picture of how development works, how its successes and failures can be assessed, and how alternatives can be introduced. The authors demonstrate how diagnostics, design of programs and policies, and impact evaluation can be used to seek new solutions to the suffering and violence caused by development failures. This text is fully engaged with the most cutting edge research in the field, and equips readers with analytical tools for the impact evaluation of development programs and policies, illustrated with numerous examples. It is underpinned throughout by a wealth of student-friendly features including case studies, quantitative problem sets, end-of-chapter questions, and extensive references. This unique text aims at helping readers learn about development, think analytically about achievements and alternative options, and be prepared to compete on the development job market.

Poor Economics

https://www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=95711265&fc=CA&cjsku=95711265...
Two practical visionaries upend the most common assumptions about how economics works in this gripping and disruptive portrait of how poor people actually live. Why do the poor borrow to save? Why do they miss out on free life-saving immunizations, but pay for unnecessary drugs? In Poor Economics, Abhijit V. Banerjee and Esther Duflo, two award-winning MIT professors, answer these questions based on years of field research from around the world. Called "marvelous, rewarding" by the Wall Street Journal, the book offers a radical rethinking of the economics of poverty and an intimate view of life on 99 cents a day. Poor Economics shows that creating a world without poverty begins with understanding the daily decisions facing the poor.

Development Economics

https://www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=95850427&fc=AU&cjsku=95850427...
Informal labour markets are prevalent in developing countries and these provide poor conditions of work and living for a large majority of the population. The papers in this book study economic development from the perspective of social justice and economic efficiency; exploring the role of land tenure and productivity in Indian agriculture. Junankar discusses the efficiency of small farms versus large farms, and the role of share-cropping tenancy. He provides a critique of neoclassical economics that assumes farmers maximize profits in competitive markets and argues that social and institutional conditions limit the conditions under which farmers operate in developing countries. Development Economics raises issues of poverty, inequality and mobility of agriculturists. Junankar proposes different taxation principles on agricultural producers that would lead to a more efficient and equitable system; and this collection of essays also highlights the role of microfinance in helping the empowerment of women in poor countries.

Doughnut Economics

https://www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=2527552&fc=AU&cjsku=2527552...
As seen on BBC Newsnight. Economics is broken, and the planet is paying the price. Unforeseen financial crises. Extreme wealth inequality. Relentless pressure on the environment. Can we go on like this? Is there an alternative? In Doughnut Economics, Oxford academic Kate Raworth lays out the seven deadly mistakes of economics and offers a radical re-envisioning of the system that has brought us to the point of ruin. Moving beyond the myths of ârational economic manâ and unlimited growth, Doughnut Economics zeroes in on the sweet spot: a system that meets all our needs without exhausting the planet. The demands of the 21st century require a new shape of economics. This might just be it. *The Sunday Times Bestseller* *A Financial Times and Forbes Book of the Year* *Winner of the Transmission Prize 2018* *Longlisted for the FT/McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award 2017* âThe John Maynard Keynes of the 21st century.â George Monbiot, Guardian âThis is sharp, significant scholarship . . . Thrilling.â Times Higher Education âRaworthâs magnum opus . . . A fascinating reminder to business leaders and economists alike to stand back at a distance to examine our modern economics.â Books of the Year, Forbes âThere are some really important economic and political thinkers around at the moment â such as Kate Raworthâs Doughnut Economics.â Andrew Marr, Guardian âAn admirable attempt to broaden the horizons of economic thinking.â Martin Wolf, Books of the Year, Financial Times âA compelling and timely intervention.â Caroline Lucas MP, Books of the Year, The Ecologist
