Bring concepts of money and banking to life with the student-oriented approach in Brandl’s MONEY, BANKING, FINANCIAL MARKETS AND INSTITUTIONS, 2E. While other books discuss the macroeconomy at the conclusion in a confusing blur of IS-LM and AS-AD models, this edition examines the macroeconomy early and clearly using only the AS-AD framework. The author places the Great Recession in proper historical context; then connects concepts with students' previous macroeconomic coursework. This thought-provoking approach carefully examines engaging topics, such as money markets and investments, including their economic foundations and the controversies within them. Students delve into topics other books gloss over, such as the globalization of financial markets, the disruption of technology to financial markets, and debates over consumer protection in financial markets.
