Central Banking and the Conduct of Monetary Policy: Structure of Central Banks and the Federal Reserve System; The Money Supply Process; Tools of Monetary Policy; What Should Central Banks Do? Monetary Policy Goals, Strategy, and Tactics. International Finance and Monetary Policy: The Foreign Exchange Market; The International Financial System.

Synopsis:

“The Mishkin text matters. The ideas and principles throughout the book are important for students and policymakers. The text is well organized, and I have never read any better explanation of economic principles.”

–J. Robert Gillette, University of Kentucky

 

“Mishkin’s textbook is informative, well-written, and approachable by both economics majors and non-majors.”

–Gabriele Camera, Purdue University

 

“Mishkin is by far the best book in the field. It is complete and exhaustive.”

–Joao Ricardo Faria, University of Texas—Dallas

“Mishkin is by far the most complete and concise reference on the market for students taking financial economics and monetary policy courses.”

–J. Reynolds, Northern Illinois University

“The quality of the writing style and the updated coverage of topics make this a great book.”

–Phillip Lane, Fairfield University

“I have my students telling me at the end of the semester [that] they have enjoyed reading the book.”

–Alla A. Melkumian, Western Illinois University

“[Mishkin] is relevant, challenging, and interesting. It provides clear explanations of monetary theory and policy. It is up-to-date. The Federal Reserve material features an insider’s perspective.”

–Linda Hooks, Washington and Lee University

“The use of economic analysis gives students a deeper understanding and attracts their interest. The extensive presentation of charts appeals to visual learners and the associated PowerPoint slides give instructors useful visual aids for classroom lectures.”

–Fiona Mclachlan, Manhattan College
