Overview

Economics students will welcome the new edition of this excellent textbook. Mathematics is an integral part of economics and understanding basic concepts is vital. Many students come into economics courses without having studied mathematics for a number of years. This clearly written book will help to develop quantitative skills in even the least numerate student up to the required level for a general Economics or Business Studies course. This second edition features new sections on subjects such as:

matrix algebra

This book is a great introduction for students with a limited math background, or a good review for those away from math for awhile. It is ideally suited to the math needs of senior undergraduate and masters level economics students (hence the word basic).
