How do you currently source materials to help students see the relevance of finance to their everyday life?
Virtually every student entering university in 2010 will have heard about The Global Financial Crisis (GFC) and will have been affected by it in some way. This small companion text helps you to introduce the GFC and its impact into your classroom and allows your students to see the immediate relevance and application of the crisis to finance theory.
Finance in Focus has been designed to be easily integrated within an introductory unit; it provides an introduction to the GFC and helps foster analysis and discussion through the inclusion of five case summaries of recent news headlines. To help you as an instructor these cases come with guided answers.
The opening chapter presents a summary of:
how the GFC evolved
how the crisis effected real economies around the world
the policies that were created to deal with the crisis
and provides a necessary conceptual framework for the cases which follow
Five case studies are presented with accompanying questions to help facilitate individual analysis and/or group discussion
For each case study, a set of guided answers are available for instructors to further aide easy integration.
