Summary

This text is well-known for using the Keynesian model in the teaching of economics; yet, in recent editions, the authors expanded coverage of the growth model considerably to achieve more balanced coverage. The text uses the aggregate supply/aggregate demand model as a fundamental tool for learning macroeconomics. It achieves the right level of rigor and detail, presenting complicated concepts in a relatively straightforward manner and using timely economic data. Using puzzles, issues, and well-developed examples, the authors provide a good balance of theory to application, allowing you to relate the materials to your everyday life.
