Macroeconomics

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!

The Dark Side of Valuation

The Dark Side of Valuation

The Definitive Guide to Valuing Hard-to-Value Companies: Now Fully Revised for Today’s Financial Markets

Financial professionals have long faced the challenge of accurately valuing companies that are difficult to value using conventional methodologies. Years ago, this challenge was most keenly felt in the “dot-com” industries, and many professionals fell victim to the “dark side,” creating values that were simply unsustainable. Now, amidst today’s global financial crisis, the same challenge applies to a far wider spectrum of enterprises and assets, ranging from Asian equities to mortgage-backed securities and financial services firms.

Aswath Damodaran has thoroughly revised this book, broadening its perspective to consider all companies that resist easy valuation. He covers the entire corporate lifecycle, from “idea” and “nascent growth” companies to those in decline and distress, and offers specific guidance for valuing technology, human capital, commodity, and cyclical firms.

Damodaran places special emphasis on the financial sector, illuminating the implications of today’s radically changed credit markets for valuation. Along the way, he addresses valuation questions that have suddenly gained urgency, ranging from “Are U.S. treasuries risk free?” to “How do you value assets in highly illiquid markets?”

How to Understand Business Finance

I really love and highly recommend this book. It presents business finance in a simple and straightforward exposition.

How to Understand Business Finance is not written by an accountant and actually relates to running a business in a real market.  It describes a business as it proceeds from initial set-up through its first year of trading, providing a quick course on business finance as it relates to business growth.

As well as learning how to understand the balance sheet and profit and loss account, readers will also grasp the principles of: market dynamics; budgeting and forecasting; fixed and variable costs; break-even analysis; the difference between profit and cash; financial ratios for measuring business performance; investment appraisal; stock market ratios; shareholder value; financial measures for improving business performance, and much more.
