Elizabeth Jones, John Sloman
Pearson Education Limited; 5th edition
This new Essential Economics for Business 5th edition (PDF) by Sloman et al presents the core principles of macroeconomics and microeconomics and applies them to the world of business. In addition, this book takes a look at wider and more topical business issues, such as business strategy, ethics, corporate social responsibility, and the state of the global environment in which we live.
The fifth edition examines everything from the effects of the financial crisis to the effects of the Brexit vote in the UK to the popular distrust of globalization to the operation of specific businesses in order to illustrate how economic theory relates to real business issues. The case studies used in this edition are up to date.
