Book Description

30 Jun 2011 0273763113 978-0273763116 1

Macroeconomics: A European Perspective will give students a fuller understanding of the subject and has been fully updated to provide broad coverage of the financial crisis. In particular, this new edition provides:

  • NEW chapters and updated text across all chapters
  • NEW data on Europe and the financial crisis
  • And what has always been the strength of the book: A unified view of macroeconomics, enabling students to make the connections between the short, medium, and long run.

"This is a truly outstanding textbook that beautifully marries theory, empirics and policy.  It is surely destined to become the gold standard against which all other texts must be measured."

Charles Bean, Deputy Governor, Bank of England 

“Refreshingly original for an undergraduate text. Relevant applications to European economies and elsewhere are plentiful, and the breadth of topics covered is truly impressive. Unlike many texts at this level, the authors do not avoid potentially tricky, yet important topics; they do their utmost to relate textbook theory to real-world economics. Relative to competing texts, I think students would find this more engaging.”

Paul Scanlon, Trinity College Dublin

“Up-to-date material on the Euro, especially in light of the current crisis; strong open economy emphasis; and lots of examples from European countries. There is so much new material on the monetary union that there is much less need for supplementary reading.”

Pekka Ilmakunnas, Aalto University School of Economics

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Undergraduate Economics Textbook 7 Jan 2011
Macroeconomics a European Perspective, is a highly commendable textbook. With the addition of several new chapters from the previous Blanchard title, including 'The crisis of 2007-2010' and 'High Debt', the textbook advances upon what was already a very sound textbook and is brought right up to date. I particularly took an interest in the the new focus boxes and margin notes providing an extension of the main text, undoubtedly differentiating this textbook from others of its kind. This book is excellent for those seeking to enhance their knowledge of Macroeconomics from whatever level, with relevant applications and extensive coverage. Definitely recommended and worth the investment!

5.0 out of 5 stars A really good studybook! 8 Dec 2011
By ljend0v
I'm really satisfied with my purchase. Even though I'm not very well versed in ''theoretical'' economic courses I must say that this book sparked an interest for the subject matter that wouldn't otherwise be there. Everything is described and explained in a simple manner so it's suitable for a really wide demographic.

My recommendation is to definitely buy this book, it's great value and you will learn a lot just by browsing through it.
