Essential Economics for Business offers students a concise, accessible and engaging introduction to the key principles of micro and macroeconomics, in addition to broader business-related topics, including business organisation and strategy. Numerous cases and examples throughout the text illustrate how economics can be used to understand specific business problems or aspects of the business environment, from economic growth, to levels of business investment, interest rates, employment issues, the prices firms charge, the rise of online shopping and Brexit. This is the ideal text for students taking a module including economics on any business or management degree or diploma course.
