Business Economics builds on the authority, clarity and real-world relevance of Economics by N. Gregory Mankiw and Mark P. Taylor (two of the world’s leading economists) to create an introductory economics textbook fully focused on the curriculum and pedagogical needs of business economics students. Business Economics has a superb logical structure. The classic ten principles approach to economics is retained and right at the outset the text considers the business environment so immediately establishing the book’s business focus. Both microeconomics and macroeconomics are then comprehensively covered and each perspective is carefully mined for insights directly relevant to business economics students. A final part examines the implications of economic globalization for the conduct of business internationally. Business Economics is a global textbook with a particular focus on Europe, the Middle East and Africa; it is replete with examples from all these regions. This text is ideal for use on both business economics degrees and on business economics modules on business, engineering and social science courses at undergraduate level. It is also ideal for use on MBA courses.
Examples of current events from Australia and New Zealand help explain how discussions on the role of the government can affect the economy. Microeconomics Principles and Practice is concerned with concepts and understanding, which sets it apart from competitor texts.
Simple Program Design with Student Resource Access for 6 Months: A Step-by-Step-Approach 5th Edition
This best-selling publication is designed for readers who want to solve common business challenges through programming techniques. Readers are guided to properly define the problem, divide it into modules, design a solution algorithm, and prove the algorithms correctness, before commencing any program code. By using pseudocode and modern programming techniques, the programmer can concentrate on developing a well-designed and correct solution, and thus eliminate many frustrating hours at the testing phase. This comprehensive and practical text provides thorough coverage and practical examples relating to business applications, and features a consistently structured approach when representing algorithms in hierarchy charts. The text is divided into two sections, the first covering algorithm design in the context of traditional programming and languages, and the second addressing algorithm design in the context of object-oriented programming. Coverage of these two key contexts equips students with the knowledge to solve day-to-day common business programming errors.
Written by Emeritus Professor LIM Chong-Yah, Founding Chairman of the tripartite National Wages Council (NWC), this unique volume offers readers an insider’s view of the genesis and the evolution of the wage determination mechanism and system in Singapore under the aegis of the NWC. As a tripartite body dealing with wages, wage policies and wage-related matters and promoting Growth with Equity, the NWC played a critical role in transforming industrial relations in Singapore from the then confrontational approach to that of mutual understanding, esprit de corps and social co-partnership. Drawing from his 30-year experience as NWC Chairman (1972-2001), Singapore’s eminent Economics Professor shares with readers the important process and problems of seeking equitable wage increases through tripartite consensus based on a yearly national wage guideline system. The book also chronicles the role of the NWC in crisis management in 1974, 1985 and 1998, and in Economic Restructuring, 1979-1981. The structure and operation of this unique Singapore institution and the interesting problems of securing unanimity of support from the three tripartite partners are revealed in the book. Some important NWC personalities and their concerns and unique contributions are interestingly covered, anecdotally.
Readership: Undergraduates, postgraduates and general public who have a keen interest in labour economics and industrial relations.
