Product description


'This book is a truly Europeanised version of the well-established introductory textbook by Goodwin et al. which enriches the common narrative of economics by adding further perspectives and analytical approaches without being confusing or too complex. The European version contains a wealth of new content on debt and deficits, economic policies, institutions and actors in the European Union. The book will surely support students in gaining a profound, practical and multi-angled knowledge of economic issues which they can apply to understand and analyse real-world phenomena, like the emergence and evolution of the recent financial and euro crises which has so dramatically influenced European economies.’ ― Prof. Dr. Torsten Niechoj, Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences, Kamp-Lintfort, Germany

‘An excellent source for lecturers who are struggling with teaching economics inside the straightjacket offered by the usual mainstream textbooks; it makes both studying and teaching more enjoyable, vision-broadening and real-life embedded by discussing issues within the historical, social and environmental contexts.’ ― Associate Professor Derya Gultekin-Karakas, Istanbul Technical University, Turkey.

‘The new edition of Macroeconomics in Context is the best English language introductory macro textbook with a focus on Europe. Three unique features make it outstanding: first, the "contextual" approach – viewing economy as embedded in society, nature, institutions and policies; second, a thorough focus on the European Union; third, a response to the quest for more pluralism in theories, with both Keynesianism and mainstream macro plus related controversies.’ ― Jan Priewe, Professor (em.), HTW Berlin – University of Applied Sciences, Germany

‘For decades there has been a lack of a relevant and pluralist introductory textbook to macroeconomics with a focus on the European economy. The European edition of Macroeconomics in Context fills this gap, and I hope it will be widely used in classrooms.’ ― Eckhard Hein, Professor of Economics and Co-Director of the Institute for International Political Economy (IPE), Berlin School of Economics and Law, Germany.

’The long financial and economic crisis was a test for governance but also science. Gaps between economic doctrines and the real world were exposed. This book offers a fresh and accessible introduction to the principles and methods of macroeconomics and builds on them a lucid overview of current policy issues from euro area imbalances to sustainable growth.’ ― László Andor, Head of Department of Economic Policy, Corvinus University, Budapest; former EU Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion.

About the Author

Sebastian Dullien is Professor for International Economics at HTW Berlin, University of Applied Sciences, and Senior Policy Fellow at the European Council on Foreign Relations. Prior to his appointment to the university in 2007, he worked in several positions, including economics editor for the Financial Times Deutschland, the German-language edition of the Financial Times. He has advised a number of ministries, members of the German and European Parliament, and several organizations of the United Nations.

Neva Goodwin is Co-Director of the Global Development and Environment Institute (GDAE) at Tufts University, where she is the director of the electronic Social Science Library: Frontier Thinking in Sustainable Development and Human Well-Being. Goodwin works toward a contextual economics theory that will have more relevance to contemporary real-world social and ecological concerns than the dominant economic paradigm does.

Jonathan M. Harris is Director of the Theory and Education Program at the Tufts University Global Development and Environment Institute, USA. His current research focuses on the implications of large-scale environmental problems, especially global climate change, for macroeconomic theory and policy.

Julie A. Nelson is Professor of Economics at the University of Massachusetts Boston and Senior Research Fellow at the Global Development and Environment Institute at Tufts University, USA. Many of her books and articles critique economic methodology from a feminist perspective. She has published in journals ranging from Econometrica and the Journal of Political Economy to Hypatia: Journal of Feminist Philosophy and Ecological Economics.

Brian Roach is Senior Research Associate at the Tufts University Global Development and Environment Institute and a lecturer at Tufts and Brandeis University, USA. He has published numerous articles on nonmarket valuation of natural resources, including drinking water quality, water-based recreation, and wildlife.

Mariano Torras teaches economics at Adelphi University in Garden City, New York, USA. A heterodox economist who specializes in ecological and development economics, Torras’s recent research has been in the areas of institutional economics and economic methodology; particular attention has been on approaches to addressing climate change.
