Book Description

1 Mar 2010
Introducing Advanced Macroeconomics: Growth and Business Cycles, 2nd edition provides students with a thorough understanding of fundamental models in macroeconomics and introduces them to methods of formal macroeconomic analysis. Split into two sections, the first half of the book focuses on macroeconomics for the long run, introducing and developing basic models of growth and structural unemployment. The second half of the book deals with the economy in the short run, focusing on the explanation of business fluctuations. This new edition retains the popular pitch and level established in the 1st edition and continues to bridge the gap between intermediate macroeconomics texts and more advanced textbooks.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully written 9 Jun 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Macro with micro foundations 24 Feb 2012
By Lebrit
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars 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.
1.0 out of 5 stars 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.
