It covers both the macrofinancial environment in which international financial managers must operate and the microfiancial problems of financial management in international trade and operations.
The orientation of the book is institutional/historical rather than purely theoretical, reflecting its practicality. Its careful explanations are designed to guide you in interpreting, forecasting, and reaching to international economic events.
The book ends with a glossary defining more than 200 terms commonly used in international finance, including common abbreviations.
