Money and Banking: Made Simple provides a sound coverage of monetary theory, policies, and institutions within a mixed economy. The book describes the whole range of banking and the financial institutions, including the central banks of major nations, the commercial banks, and the specialist banks (i.e. discount houses and other financial institutions), with special reference to the United Kingdom. The book discusses money markets and rates of interest; the theory of money; fiscal and monetary policy; and international monetary relations. The monetary environment is also considered. Students taking management, accounting, insurance, and actuarial work studies and undergraduates reading Applied Economics, Business Finance, Money and Banking, and Government publications will find the book invaluable.
