Teaching Students the Logic of Finance: The seventh edition of Financial Management provides students with an overview of financial management suited to a first course in finance.
The focus of the text is on the big picture, providing an introduction to financial decision making grounded in current financial theory and the current state of world economic conditions.

Principle 2: There Is a Risk-Return Trade-off
Principle 3: Cash Flows Are the Source of Value
