If you always thought that macroeconomics was too complex and theoretical to understand, this book is the perfect introduction to the subject. The Macroeconomic Environment of Business provides a clear understanding of the economy by focusing on core issues such as inflation, unemployment, interest rates, and economic growth. Each issue and topic is approached in a self-contained way and questions - such as how should one measure a macroeconomic concept; what makes it large or small; and why does the concept matter? - are put forth to readers who are new to the dynamic field of economics. With easy-to-understand explanations and interesting fun facts that link macroeconomics to real life, this book will also be a valuable resource for lecturers who wish to engage students in the study of macroeconomics.
