Publisher Comments:

Do you want a book that provides an integrated view of macroeconomics?

 

Olivier Blanchard helps students to see the big macroeconomic picture by integrating one unifying model throughout the text.

 

Are you tired of macroeconomics texts that take too many shortcuts?

 

Olivier Blanchard gives thorough treatment to many concepts that other books just skim over, with the understanding that students will use these tools throughout their academic and professional careers.

Olivier Blanchard’s organization allows for the greatest degree flexibility, so professors can direct their class as they see fit, and students can learn from a methodology that matches the goals of their course.
