Overview

Its high-level perspective on the global economy differentiates this introduction to international finance from other textbooks. Melvin and Norrbin provide essential information for those who seek employment in multinational industries, while competitors focus onstandard economic tools and financial management skills. Readers learn how to reach their own conclusions about trends and new developments, not simply function within an organization.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"International Money and Finance is an excellent resource for both international and multinational finance courses. The combined coverage of both topics - the environment of international financial institutions and instruments, and financial management tools for multinational corporations - makes it easier for students to grasp the impact of both on businesses that increasingly operate in a global environment."

--Anne M. Alexander, University of Wyoming

"This latest edition of the best-selling book discusses a number of important and somewhat complex concepts in international money and finance in a succinct, lucid yet analytical manner."

--Ramkishen S. Rajan,George Mason University andNational University of Singapore

"The authors do an exceptional job of including this extensive range of topics in international money and finance, which provides high-level perspective on the global economy. I expect it will be a standard textbook for instruction and reference over the years."

--Suleyman Degirmen, Mersin University

"A concise, well-written, rigorous but at the same time easily accessible exposition of international finance."

--Firat Demir, University of Oklahoma
