Reviews - What do customers think about Global Finance and Financial Markets: A Modern Introduction?

Not elementary, not globally focused  Jan 18, 2002
This book purports to be elementary and easy to understand. It also claims to introduce the reader to global finance. In fact, it does neither particularly well.

The language is unnecessarily ponderous and unclear, which is a shame. Finance doesn't need to be so academic, boring and confusing. The author does little to welcome neophytes into the financial world, and a lack of interesting visuals and examples doesn't help matters.

Furthermore, much of the book's focus is on generic markets (stocks, futures, etc.), rather than on global (overseas) markets. And so there isn't enough attention to the characteristics and peculiarities of foreign markets. Similarly, the major topics of global finance, that one might reasonably expect to be the meat of such a titled book, are mostly left to just one chapter (Global Finance) of 24 pages!

The book just doesn't fit the bill of a good introduction to global finance.
