Highly respected practising financial analysts and senior academic economists worked together to select the topics that appear in this book. The topics were chosen from the body of knowledge that the CFA Institute Education Advisory Committee identified as topics that CFA Program candidates need to learn for earning the well-regarded Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation. The Candidate Body of Knowledge consists of the knowledge, skills, and abilities that are necessary to analyze and solve common practical problems that arise in investing, valuing investments or companies, and managing portfolios. This volume is an edited compilation of readings on economics from the CFA Program curriculum. The chapters are written by highly regarded economists and practitioners who were asked to present the topics in a way that is readily accessible to everyone. The authors were chosen by CFA Institute for the depth of their understanding of the topics assigned to them and also for their proven ability to effectively teach the topics.
