Overview

The fundamental goals of this text are to provide an integrated view of macroeconomics and to make close contact with current macroeconomic events. This Intermediate Macroeconomics text is organized around a set of core chapters followed by three optional extensions. The Core covers the Short Run, Medium Run, and Long Run and is then followed by the three Extensions: Openness, Expectations, and Pathologies. The book concludes with a section on policy, although policy issues are also sprinkled throughout most chapters. Already known for its global emphasis and empirical applications of theory, the third edition has attempted to simplify many of the more difficult topics in macroeconomics. Theoretical material is always presented within the context of a real-world application in three ways: words, graphs, and with algebra.
