Editorial Reviews

Booknews
As the multinational corporation becomes the norm rather than the exception, there is an apparent need to internationalize the tools of financial analysis. This revised textbook provides a conceptual framework within which the key financial decisions of the multinational firm can be analyzed. All the traditional areas of corporate finance are explored from the perspective of a multinational corporation, concentrating on decision elements rarely encountered by domestic firms. The revisions are mainly of a pedagogical nature, enhancing the text as a teaching/learning vehicle. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR booknews.com
