Overview

Immediately engage today's reader with MACRO, a unique modern presentation of macroeconomics that makes it easy to emphasize a solid microfoundations and real-business cycle approach in a presentation unlike any other intermediate macroeconomics text. Student engineered and faculty approved, Robert Barro's MACRO demonstrates an extraordinary command of growth, equilibrium, and business cycle theory with a focus on microfoundations. Captivating features range from rocker Bono's perspective on debt relief to the hidden costs of multiple shifts and overtime hours, all within a unified model of macroeconomics ideal for all majors. The distinctive, magazine-style pages of Barro's MACRO were inspired by feedback from students and refined by input from more than seventy teaching professionals. The result is a brief paperback packed with current policy and data examples that reflect the author's extensive research in the field, as well as a suite of tightly integrated learning aids that accommodate the busy, diverse lifestyles of today's learners. Students can even access the Cengage Global Economic Watch, which connects to thousands of journal and news articles and videos using a simple search engine. Students experience intermediate macroeconomics as it happens today with the powerful, appealing presentation and resources found only in MACRO.
