Synopsis: Traditional financial management texts are typically overloaded with analysis of financial statements and number crunching and offer students little in the way of practical general principles. Principles of Financial Management is designed to supplement these textbooks with a selection of readings that focus on general principles to deliver a timeless base of knowledge to students. The goal of this text is to provide students with information they can recall throughout their lives. This is a highly unique text that is ideal for instructors teaching financial management and business management courses. The selected articles bring together a range of traditional and nontraditional financial management topics including cost of capital, financial statements, credit analysis, financing startups, agency problems, and ethics.
