About the book

This book aims to provide insightful analysis on the tools of economic management in the context of changing realities, as well as on definition of basic concepts of macroeconomics and how these concepts relate to governments taking crucial economic decisions that affect our lives. Some interesting aspects and questions in regards to this are: why some countries achieve fast and high economic growth while others experience stunted and low growth, why do the economic decisions of one country affect those of the other countries, why do we have financial system, and what are the tools of financial system management.

The book will attempt to act as a bridge between those who possess basic knowledge of economics and need some practical ideas in connecting ideas to reality on one hand, and those without adequate knowledge of economics who are anxious to understand why certain economic challenges occur and how they are addressed. Thus, the book is imagined to serve both theoretical and practical purposes.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Romina Rovan

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
