Now firmly established as one of the leading economics principles texts in the UK and Europe, this exciting new fourth edition of Economics by N. Gregory Mankiw (Harvard University) and Mark P. Taylor (Washington University), has been fully updated. New topics have been added in including theories on, for example, Marxist and Feminist theories on labour giving wider context to economic issues. A new chapter on Issues in Financial markets has been added covering the financial crisis and its causes and the final chapter has been updated to reflect the post-crisis world and how theories of the crisis have emerged.

Mark P. Taylor is Dean of the John M Olin Business School at Washington University, US and was previously Dean of Warwick Business School at the University of Warwick, UK. He obtained his first degree in philosophy, politics and economics from Oxford University. He then worked as a foreign exchange dealer in London for two years while simultaneously studying part-time for a master’s degree in economics at London University, from where he also holds a doctorate in economics. Professor Taylor has taught economics at various universities (including Warwick, Oxford, Marseille and New York), at various levels (from principles courses to advanced graduate and MBA courses) and in various fields (including macroeconomics, microeconomics and econometrics). He also worked for several years as a senior economist at the International Monetary Fund and before that at the Bank of England. His work has been extensively published in scholarly journals, such as the Journal of Political Economy and the Economic Journal, and he is today one of the most highly cited economists in the world in economic research. In addition, Professor Taylor has acted as an advisor to the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, the Bank of England, the European Commission and to senior members of the UK government. He is a research fellow of the Centre for Economic Policy Research, a member of council of the Royal Economic Society, and a fellow of both the Royal Statistical Society and the Royal Society of Arts.

His published articles have appeared in academic journals such as the American Economic Review, Journal of Political Economy, and Quarterly Journal of Economics. His work has also appeared in more widely accessible forums, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, and Fortune.
