The authors have ensured that the existing stengths of the book′s tried and tested approach are retained whilst the latest theoretical developments and policy controversies are examined. It provides the UK undergraduate with:
- Traditional methods of analysis (IS/LM) as well as neo classical and neo Keynesian approaches
- An emphasis on the leading contemporary conceptual issues and an historical perspective on their development
- A highly developed and successful text with a non–US orientation that makes sense of the UK context for macroeconomic policy and debate
Based on long teaching experience Macroeconomics will continue to be an essential text for second and third year undergraduate courses.
