Exchange rates and exchange rate fluctuation continue to play an increasingly important role in all our lives. Exchange Rates and International Finance fourth edition provides a clear and concise guide to the causes and consequences of exchange rate fluctuations, enabling you to grasp the essentials of the theory and its relevance to major events in currency markets. A clear, non-technical explanation of the issues, emphasising intuitive understanding and interpretation of economic arguments rather than mathematical proofs. A balanced summary of the state of our knowledge in this area, including explanations of the problems faced by researchers in this field, and an indication of what questions remain open. Provides a sound overview of empirical evidence, without going into intricate detail: a springboard for those wishing to delve deeper into the published literature. Early chapters explain the basics of demand and supply, and basic macroeconomics, so those without prior study in economics will find the subject accessible. Covers leading edge material including the latest general equilibrium approaches.
The orientation of the book is towards exchange rate determination with particular emphasis given to the contributions of modern finance theory. Both fixed and floating exchange rate models and empirical results are explored and discussed.
