Solid introduction to macroeconomics
on 11 May 2004
This book provides a useful introduction to Macroeconomics for first year undergraduates. It is best used as a base to develop and intuition and feel for the subject, but is, on the whole, quite simplistic, and one should try to quickly move on to a more technical reading, such as Macroeconomics by Blanchard, which is more mathematical, and provides a better base for further study.
Has good sections on Economic Growth and open ecnomomy macroeconomics.
Recommended for those who want to avoid calculus and maths in general! Those with stronger mathematical skills may find it a bit frustrating.
