2.0 out of 5 stars Perspective of an Economics Undergraduate in UK, 8 Jan. 2014
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Macroeconomics (Paperback)
Williamson is incredibly long-winded and repetitive. He has a horrible habit of rephrasing redundant material every other page, greatly inflating the amount of perceived content. This edition is bloated and would benefit greatly from being stripped down. There are countless typographical errors and layout issues, mostly in regards to the placement of graphs several pages later completely out of context. The price is therefore unjustified in my opinion and I would greatly suggest sparing the cash and spending it on something worth its weight.
Essentially, this text follows along with progressively more encompassing, though very simplified, models: Malthusian, Solow, micro-founded, etc. The first few chapters are extremely basic and are generally not worth reading if you have any experience in the subject. God knows why our professor chose this horrible text... I would recommend Blanchard Macroeconomics: a European Perspective over this any day, even though it takes a different approach.
