„Ако хората продължават да не вярват в простотата на математиката, това е, защото не разбират колко сложен е животът.”  -  Джон фон Нойман[1]


  • Mathematics for Economics

Third Edition

Michael Hoy, John Livernois, Chris McKenna,

Ray Rees and Thanasis Stengos

The MIT Press, 2011

“Mathematics is the language of economics, and this book is an excellent introduction to that language.”

—George J. Mailath, Walter H. Annenberg Professor in the Social Sciences and Professor of Economics, University of Pennsylvania

“While there are many mathematics texts for economics available, this one is by far the best. It covers a comprehensive range of techniques with interesting applications, and the numerous worked examples and problems are a real bonus for the instructor. Teaching a course with this book is enjoyable and easy.”

—Kevin Denny, University College Dublin



  • Introductory Econometrics for Finance 

Second Edition

Chris Brooks

Cambridge University Press, 2011

This introduction to contemporary topics in the modeling of financial time series is data and problem driven, giving students the skills to estimate and interpret models, and intuitively grasp the underlying theoretical econometrics. An introductory knowledge of calculus, algebra, statistics and regression analysis is assumed. The book focuses on the needs of finance students and uses pedagogic textbook features throughout, notably in the later chapters, which offer advice on planning and executing a project in empirical finance, and which also evaluates sources of on-line financial information. 



  • Intermediate Microeconomics: A Modern Approach

Hal R. Varian

W. W. Norton & Company, 2010

Varian is “the Adam Smith of the new discipline of Googlenomics.”—Stephen Levy, Wired


  • Introduction to Modern Economic Growth

Daron Acemoglu

Princeton University Press, 2009

"This is much more than a textbook on growth theory; it is a milestone in macroeconomics. It provides a unified approach to the study of economic dynamics, including a rigorous yet teachable background in recursive methods and dynamic optimization, and an impressive range of macroeconomic topics. What is most fascinating is the tour of the state-of-the-art literature on long-run development to which the author has been a leading contributor."--Fabrizio Zilibotti, University of Zurich



  • Economic Growth

Robert J. Barro and Xavier I. Sala-i-Martin

The MIT Press, 2004

"Barro and Sala-i-Martin have done a superb job of synthesizing much of the existing theoretical and empirical research on the mechanisms and determinants of economic growth and convergence. Though it incorporates much new material, this updated version is fully accessible to a third year undergraduate student, while remaining of invaluable use to any research scholar seriously interested in growth and development economics."

—Phillipe Aghion, Department of Economics, Harvard University

"This is an invaluable book for a first graduate course in economic growth. The exposition is clear and easy to follow, but also rigorous. It is an excellent stepping stone for research in the field."

—K. Daron Acemoglu, Professor of Economics, MIT 


  • International Economics: Theory and Policy

Fourth Edition 

David Romer

Irwin/McGraw-Hill, 2011

David Romer's Advanced Macroeconomics, fourth edition, continues its tradition as the standard text and the starting point for graduate macroeconomic courses and helps lay the groundwork for students to begin doing research in macroeconomics and monetary economics. Formal models are used to present and analyze key ideas and issues. The theoretical analysis is supplemented by examples of relevant empirical work, illustrating the ways that theories can be applied and tested. This well-respected and well-known text is unique in the marketplace.



  • Macroeconomics

Fifth Edition

Michael Lewis

The MIT Press, 1997

Robert Barro's Macroeconomics has become the classic textbook presentation of the equilibrium approach to macroeconomics. In its first four editions, this book has shown undergraduates how market-clearing models with strong microeconomic foundations can be used to understand real-world phenomena and to evaluate alternative macroeconomic policies. Moreover, a single, unified framework works as well for short-term business fluctuation as for long-term economic growth.



  • Macroeconomics

Seventh Edition

N. Gregory Mankiw

Worth Paldrave Macmillan, 2010

The #1 bestselling intermediate macroeconomics book, Mankiw's masterful text covers the field as accessibly and concisely as possible, in a way that emphasizes the relevance of both macroeconomics's classical roots and its current practice.  Featuring the latest data, new case studies, and a number of significant content updates, the new Sixth Edition takes the Mankiw legacy even further.
