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.
This dedicated South African edition of Prof. N. Gregory Mankiw and Prof. Mark P. Taylor’s Economics combines up-to-date South African content and examples with a robust conceptual understanding of the subject using contemporary approaches to theory.

A rigorous emphasis throughout on ‘thinking like an economist’ – adopting the tools, methods and concepts economists use in addressing problems and issues. The main body of the text has been expertly tailored to South African students, encouraging them to apply the information and data supplied to their own environment and experiences.
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.
