Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

In the revision of this leading text, the authors incorporate the latest data and research while taking stock of sweeping changes in the international financial landscape produced by financial innovation, deregulation, and geopolitical considerations. With their proven casual, conversational style, the authors make accessible sophisticated concepts such as asset pricing, financial contracting, and rational expectations.


  • In addition to providing an overview of the entire text, Chapter 1 links the field of money, banking, and financial markets to specific careers so that readers can see the connection to life after graduation.
  • A new emphasis on the consolidation of the financial services industry is most evident in substantially revised sections of Chapter 11, "The Nature of Financial Institutions," and Chapter 15, "The Regulation of Markets and Institutions."
  • New developments in global markets, including the Asian financial crisis and the newly created European Central Bank, are addressed in Chapter 10, "Understanding Foreign Exchange."
  • Pedagogical features such as Going Out on a Limb and Off the Record engage students, while Reading the Financial News and In the News boxes encourage reading of financial newspapers.


The tenth edition comes with a powerful new learning tool, an online course companion Web site at www.awlonline.com/ritter. For each text chapter, the Web site offers multiple-choice quizzes as well as numerous links. In addition, PowerPoint slides of all the text's figures and tables are available for downloading, and an online syllabus builder allows instructors to create a calendar of assignments for each class.


The Study Guide, prepared by Fred C. Graham of The American University, sharpens and tests understanding of key concepts. Features include chapter synopses, essay questions and problems, multiple-choice, completion, and true-false questions. Contact your campus bookstore for ordering information.

5 of 12 people found the following review helpful By sab001 on March 21, 2006
Format: Hardcover
Principles of Money, Banking, and Financial Markets contains a great deal of information regarding economics in the United States. As a student, I find it to be poorly written. The authors/editors make constant reference throughout the text to other sections of the text. For example, we will discuss this in depth in chapter seven, but for now, lets reflect our continued study from chapter two and three. By doing so, we will be better prepared to read chapter eleven when we get to it. If the authors / editors left out the references and just left the actual information needed to learn the material, the student would be able to follow the material and perhaps understand the topic better. I am strongly encouraging our economics department to seek another text for future semesters.
