Its high-level perspective on the global economy differentiates this introduction to international finance from other textbooks.  Melvin and Norrbin provide essential information for those who seek employment in multinational industries, while competitors focus on standard economic tools and financial management skills.  Readers learn how to reach their own conclusions about trends and new developments, not simply function within an organization. The 8th edition, newly updated and expanded, offers concise descriptions, current case studies, and new pedagogical materials to help readers make sense of global finance.

  • Describes a nuanced view of international finance by drawing on material from the fields of theoretical finance and international macro-finance
  • Features 100% revised chapters, new pedagogical content, and online supplementary materials
