Summary
"Now more than ever before, executives and managers need to understand their larger economic context. In A Concise Guide to Macroeconomics, David Moss leverages his many years of teaching experience at Harvard Business School to lay out important macroeconomic concepts in engaging, clear, and concise terms. In a simple and intuitive way, he breaks down the ideas into output, money, and expectations. In addition, Moss introduces powerful tools for interpreting the big-picture economic developments that shape events in the contemporary business arena. He uses detailed examples drawn from history to illuminate important concepts, and leaves the reader with a clearer picture of how our abstract economy actually works, and what impact in has on business. This classic resource is fully updated, including a new chapter on the Global Financial Crisis"--
