Cecchetti's Money, Banking, and Financial Markets, 2e offers a fresh, modern, and more student-friendly approach to the subject. Students will find the material more relevant and interesting because of the book's unique emphasis on the Five Core Principles, the early introduction of risk, and an integrated global perspective. Cecchetti is THE money and banking book for today's students. By focusing on the big picture via core principles, Cecchetti teaches students the rationale for financial rules and institutional structure so that even when the financial system evolves, students' knowledge will not be out of date. The author draws on his vast experience, which includes: VP at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, publishing in and editing various journals, consulting for the European Central Bank, the Bank of England, the Bank of Israel, and the Reserve Bank of Australia, as well as his years of teaching at various schools including Ohio State, Brandeis, Princeton, and Oxford University.
