Whilst many undergraduate finance textbooks are largely descriptive in nature, the economic analysis in most graduate texts is too advanced for latter year undergraduates. This book bridges the gap between these two extremes, offering a textbook that studies economic activity in financial markets, focusing on how consumers determine future consumption and on the role of financial securities.
Areas covered in include:
1. Introduction 2. Investment Decisions Under Certainty 3. Uncertainty and Risk 4. Asset Pricing Models 5. Private Insurance With Asymmetric Information 6. Derivative Securities 7. Corporate Finance 8. Project Evaluation and the Social Discount Rate
