In this revised and updated edition of A Concise Guide to Macroeconomics, David A. Moss draws on his years of teaching at Harvard Business School to explain important macro concepts using clear and engaging language. This guidebook covers the essentials of macroeconomics and examines, in a simple and intuitive way, the core ideas of output, money, and expectations. Early chapters leave you with an understanding of everything from fiscal policy and central banking to business cycles and international trade. Later chapters provide a brief monetary history of the United States as well as the basics of macroeconomic accounting. You'll learn why countries trade, why exchange rates move, and what makes an economy grow. Moss' detailed examples will arm you with a clear picture of how the economy works and how key variables impact business and will equip you to anticipate and respond to major macroeconomic events, such as a sudden depreciation of the real exchange rate or a steep hike in the federal funds rate.
Listen to this book from start to finish for a complete overview of macroeconomics, or use it as a reference when you're confronted with specific challenges, like the need to make sense of monetary policy or to read a balance of payments statement. Either way you'll come away with a broad understanding of the subject and its key pieces, and you'll be empowered to make smarter business decisions.

Update: Visual guide is available
UPDATE: The visual guide is found in iTunes, not Books. I apologize. With that said, I have found this audiobook helpful now that I am able to see the examples mapped out in the visual guide.
Bought to supplement a class reading. Audiobook states that a visual guide is available for free upon download however I have not had any luck finding a link on its iBook page nor is there a website that allows readers to gain access. Would have been a better learning tool had it been included, as advertised.
