Macroeconomics

Hubbard, O’Brien, and Rafferty realize that most students enrolled in today’s intermediate macroeconomics courses are either undergraduate or masters students who are likely to become entrepreneurs, managers, bankers, stock brokers, accountants, lawyers, or government officials.  Very few students will pursue a Ph.D. in economics.

Given this student profile, Hubbard, O’Brien, and Rafferty’s new text presents Intermediate Macroeconomics in the context of contemporary events, policy, and business with an integrated explanation of today’s financial crisis.  Student and instructor feedback tells us that Hubbard, O’Brien, and Rafferty helps make the link between theory and real-world easier for students!

Leading Outside The Lines

An all-new approach to understanding the (in)formal connections of an organization

From the bestselling coauthor of the business classic The Wisdom of Teams comes an all-new exploration of the modern workplace, and how leaders and managers must embrace it for success. Katzenbach and Khan examine how two distinct factions together form the bigger picture for how organizations actually work: the more defined “formal” organization of a company-the management structure, performance metrics, and processes-and the “informal”-the culture, social networks, and ad hoc communities that spring up naturally and can accelerate or hinder how the organization works. With dynamic examples from enterprises around the world, this book takes a timeless organizational approach and creates a powerful paradigm-shifting tool set for applying it.
