Product Description

Review

This is an excellent addition to the macro text market. The treatment of the topics is clear and always involves engagement with the emperical evidence. The latter is drawn from Europe and the US and the rest of the world. The coverage of topics is good.

This text is designed for 'less able' intellects, like myself, or is it simply well structured ?

Step-by-step methodology, using comprehensible algebraic analysis. Clear, concise, good use of the english language and very stimulating and engaging.

This is quite an advanced text for the budding economist. It is strong in so far as it is really in depth and clear. I find it weak in terms of every macroecononic section is based on micro foundations, which is not to every economist's taste. There are alternative models which are just as relevant - and this book in my view does not provide sufficient critique on the micro-based standard fare presented within.

Very Solid Textbook 2 Mar. 2011
By Peter B. Klibowitz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm using this textbook has part of my Master's program. The textbook has a good combination of theory and empirical results. They break down the concepts so that they are understandable and keep you from feeling lost. Finally the textbook builds upon itself in a logical sequence.
A great text in a poorly bound book 9 Feb. 2015
By Alexander - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am convinced that this is a brilliant book on advanced macroeconomics (well, perhaps "lower advanced" or "introductory advanced") for those of us who did not graduate from MIT et al. Very well written and up to the point. One of the reviewers says that it is too long - well, that is the classical trade-off: you either have a brief book or one with detailed explanations of the logic behind the models. Personally I vote for the second option which is especially useful when you use the book for self-study rather than to support your university classes.
The book is indeed very good at closing the gap between intermediate and advanced macro courses - thus it reaches exactly the goal the authors declare in the preface to the book.
The only bad thing that I can say about the book is that its binding is of extremely low quality. My copy is very close to becoming two thinner ones (and I have only read less than a quarter of the text so far), and I guess it is not long before pages start explicitly falling out from the book. I hope the publisher will take note and will do a better job when preparing the next edition. For the owners of the 2nd edition, a visit to the bookbinders soon after receiving the book may be a natural choice.
Attrocious 12 Nov. 2013
By ISM - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am borrowing this book from a fellow student for a unit in Advanced Macroeconomics.

As another reviewer mentioned, there are 30 odd pages missing - most of chapter 24, which is on the AS-AD model in an open economy with a fixed exchange rate.

The writing is very convoluted and unnecessary long, it is hard work to read.

It is like having to listening to some boring old windbag who loves the sound of his own voice. It might be ok to present with a long chatty style for a short book, but at over 800 pages it is just painful. It makes it extremely difficult to sort the wheat from the chaff.

I would only buy this if I had to (in my case I managed to borrow it) for a course, but you you can do a lot better with a Google search and finding some decent slides from Harvard, MIT etc.

Macro-Economics is wooly enough without books like this.
