It starts with essential undergraduate macroeconomics and develops in a simple and rigorous manner the central topics of modern macroeconomic theory including rational expectations, growth, business cycles, money, unemployment, government policy, and the macroeconomics of nonclearing markets. The emphasis throughout the book is on both foundations and presenting the simplest model for each topic that will deliver the relevant answers.
The first two chapters recall the main workhorses of undergraduate macroeconomics: The next chapters present four fundamental “building blocks” of modern macroeconomics: Later the book deals with growth, notably the Ramsey model, overlapping generations, and endogenous growth. Chapter 10 moves to the famous “real business cycles” RBCwhich integrate in a unified framework growth and fluctuations.
The final chapters look at the issue of stabilization, how best to guard the economy from shocks, and theoryy connections between politics and the macroeconomy.
