The world is near the bottom of a global recession that is causing widespread business
contraction, increases in unemployment, and shrinking government revenues. Although recent
data indicate the large industrialized economies may have reached bottom and are beginning to
recover, for the most part, unemployment is still rising. Numerous small banks and households
still face huge problems in restoring their balance sheets, and unemployment has combined with
sub-prime loans to keep home foreclosures at a high rate.
The field of macroeconomic theory has evolved rapidly over the last quarter
century. A quick glance at the discipline’s leading journals reveals that virtually
the entire academic profession has turned to interpreting macroeconomic
data with models that are based on microeconomic foundations. Unfortunately,
these models often require a relatively high degree of mathematical sophistication,
leaving them largely inaccessible to the interested lay person (students,
newspaper columnists, business economists, and policy makers).
In recent years, Viet Nam’s economy has benefited from its Government’s open-door policy. With a stable political environment and its economic potential, Viet Nam is an attractive destination for foreign investors.
What is Economics? Economics is not a natural science, i.e. it is not concerned with studying the physical world like chemistry, biology. Social sciences are connected with the study of people in society. It is not possible to conduct laboratory experiments, nor is it possible to fully unravel the process of human decisionmaking. “Economics is the study of how we the people engage ourselves in production, distribution and consumption of goods and services in a society.” Normative economics and Positive Economics: Normative economics refers to value judgments, e.g.

technology. Economics for Business has been written to provide a considered, comprehensive,
yet accessible introduction to economics to accompany such courses.

The ideal economic policy, both for today and tomorrow,
is very simple. Government should protect and defend
against domestic and foreign aggression the lives
and property of the persons under its jurisdiction, settle
disputes that arise, and leave the people otherwise free
to pursue their various goals and ends in life. This is a
radical idea in our interventionist age.

decision making on critical management and policy issues.

enterprises, this volume compares the experiences of women with
those of men. The author redresses an over-reliance on subjective

study of forty matched pairs of male/female owners, and their
strategies for raising finances.
The book finds considerable similarities between female and male
entrepreneurs in the type and amount of finance used in the business.

Targets also move dramatically over time. SME development policies in Western Europe, for example,
focused on employment creation in the late 1980s and early 1990s. By the end of the century the emphasis
had changed to international competitiveness and innovation. As a result, policy targets moved towards
technology issues and creation of an enterprise culture. In transition economies a major focus has been upon
creating an enabling environment for the market economy.
