Highly recommended for both dummies and people familiar with economics. The author presents an unbiased, unpartisan, clear introduction to numerous aspects of monetary policy, financial institutions, and financial markets. This book is very useful and gorgeous. It is not boring, and full of inspiration. Have to buy this cheap textbook.

Summary

The Economics of Money, Banking, and Financial Markets set the standard for money and banking courses when it published in its first edition, and it continues to be the worldwide market leader. The historic economic events and financial crises of late 2008 have changed the entire landscape of money and banking. Having just served as Governor of the Federal Reserve, only Mishkin has the unique insider's perspective needed to present the current state of money and banking and explain the latest debates and issues for today’s readers. For professors who teach with less emphasis on monetary theory and prefer to focus more time on financial institutions, the Business School Edition is the ideal alternative.
