Every chapter emphasizes how the different actors in the economy behave and interact: what are they trying to achieve and what limits their ability to put their intentions into practice? This is extended to the modelling of growth, where the role of innovation rents in the Schumpeterian model is highlighted. It is essential that students understand previous periods of growth, stability and crisis in preparing for future shocks. With this in mind, the book enables the reader to interpret long run historical data and to compare institutional detail in different eras and across the world.
Macroeconomics not only develops the critical thinking skills required for academic success, but ensures that students can analyze data, trends, and policy debates with the confidence necessary for a career in economics or finance. It is essential reading for all those interested in learning more about the current macroeconomic system and the role of financial institutions.
