Construction economics: a new approach, 2nd edition. By Danny Myers, London: Taylor & Francis, 2008. 320pp, ISBN 978-0-415-46229-7, £25.99 (pb)
Construction Economics provides students with the principles and concepts of economic theory and relates this to the construction industry, and the new approach views economics as central to government initiatives in sustainable construction. This updated second edition has been expanded to cover the latest debates on the private finance initiative, value management, off-site manufacture, the credit crunch, the 2008 OFT investigation into contractors colluding, and sustainable construction.
