Product Description

Review

'Nils Gottfries's thoughtful, consistent and lucid exposition breathes fresh air into a macroeconomics textbook. It balances descriptive realism with conceptual coherence judiciously, and its application of principles to the experiences of many countries over many decades is very welcome.' John Driffill, Birkbeck, University of London, UK

'This is a great book. It uses a consistent theory throughout, explains it well, and does a tremendous job in confronting theory with data.' Steinar Holden, University of Oslo, Norway

'This new intermediate textbook in macroeconomics succeeds in unifying long-run and short-run macroeconomic analysis by adopting an explicit monopolistic competition approach to firm behavior as well as forward-looking consumption and investment behavior. The book has a solid foundation in recent macroeconomic research on growth, unemployment, inflation, monetary and fiscal policy and business cycles, and it offers its readers an in-dept discussion of modern topics such as financial globalization, financial and government debt crises, and the role of institutions for good macroeconomic performance.' Erling Steigum, Norwegian Business School, Norway
 
'This is a superb book! It contains a rigorous treatment of the New-Keynesian model combined with illustrative examples and interesting policy discussions. Students will find the book well-written and easily accessible.' Fredrik NG Andersson, Lund University, Sweden

'This book is an excellent and innovative new textbook for intermediate macroeconomics, where conventional macroeconomics is explained with a deeper emphasis on the role of microfoundations. This allows students to be exposed to modern macroeconomic analysis in a rigorous yet still accessible way. The material is up-to-date with the inclusion of recent economic events, and the text offers very useful examples.' Gianluigi Vernasca, University of Essex, UK

"What is particularly appealing is that the book succeeds in joining together short- and long-run theory in the same overall model framework based on imperfect competition with wage and price setting market participants." Christian Groth, University of Copenhagen, Denmark




Book Description

Clear, relevant, to the point European text based on microfoundations combined with a Keynesian approach, packed with 250 graphs of real data, and aimed squarely at the best UK & European students

This book is excellent! It really makes Macroeconomic concepts much, much simpler to understand. Also, the feel of the pages is good. As far as I remember, delivery was quick

Gottfries macroeconomics manages the impressive feat of combining the unrealistic assumptions that characterize mathematically founded macroeconomic models whilst somehow contriving to lose the mathematical rigor that is the entire point of such models (and hence assumptions). Endless exercises involving mindless (and frequently ambiguous) curve shifting do little to break up either long winded explanations of obvious concepts, or absurd simplification of the few engaging questions that this book actually addresses. Sadly there are few macroeconomic books that are much better. This book is symptomatic of the complete contempt that academia seems to hold undergraduate students in, reflected in simplifications that are so convoluted they are more effort to learn than the real thing.
