1.0 out of 5 stars Worst of both worlds, 30 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Macroeconomics (Paperback)
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.
