Overview

This set combines a key text on advanced macroeconomics with an invalubale accompanying solutions manual.

Advanced macroeconomics can seem a daunting prospect. Complex and poorly defined, infected with a variety of conflicting approaches, it is difficult for the student to get an overall picture of what there is and how it fits in. Foundations of Modern Macroeconomics is aimed at getting round this fundamental problem: it deals with all the major topics, summarizes the important approaches, and gives students a coherent angle on all aspects of macroeconomic thought. Each chapter deals with a separate area of macroeconomics, and each contains a summary section of key points and a further reading list, enabling the student to check what has been learnt and investigate further in other books. The exercise and solutions manual provides helpful pointers and solutions to exercises. Each chapter of the manual contains short answer questions followed by longer intermediate and advanced exercises. Hints and tips, as well as full solutions, are provided making this an invaluable aid to the main text.
