Fundamentals of Economics and Financial Markets
Interest is the basis of modern capital markets. Depending on whether you are lending or borrowing, it can be viewed as a return on an asset lending or the cost of capital borrowing. This tutorial gives an introduction to this fundamental concept, including what it means to compound. The book presents the economics of financial markets; it is not a text in corporate finance, managerial finance, or investments in the usual senses of those terms.
Finance and capital markets
The relationship between a course for which this book is written, and courses in corporate finance and investments, is analogous to the relationship between a standard course in microeconomics and a course in managerial economics. I emphasize concrete, intuitive interpretations of the economic analysis. My objective is to enable students to recognize how the theoretical and empirical results that economists have established for financial markets are built on the central economic principles of equilibrium in competitive markets, opportunity costs, diversification, arbitrage, and trade-offs between risk and expected return.
I develop carefully the logic that supports and organizes these results, leaving the derivation of rigorous proofs from first principles to advanced texts. Some proofs and technical extensions are presented in appendices to some of the chapters. Students who use this text will acquire an understanding of the economics of financial markets that will enable them to read with some sophistication articles in the public press about financial markets and about public policy toward those markets.
Dedicated readers will be able to understand the central issues and the results if not the technical methods in the scholarly literature. I address the book primarily to undergraduate students. Undergraduate and beginning graduate students in programs of business administration who want an understanding of how economists assess financial markets against the criteria of allocative and informational efficiency will also find this book useful.
