Macroeconomics: a European text

Author: Burda, Michael C. ; Wyplosz, CharlesINSEAD Area: Economics and Political SciencePublisher: Oxford University Press (OUP) 1993.Language: EnglishDescription: 486 p. : Graphs ; 25 cm.ISBN: 0198773064Type of document: INSEAD BookBibliography/Index: Includes bibliographical references and index and glossaryAbstract: The book covers two courses. The first part (chapters 1-12) corresponds to the macro course. It starts with an open economy from the very beginning, presents the building blocks of the economic model, explores the controversies and concludes on the eclectic view. Thus the view is taken that macroeconomists are actually in agreement over a large range of issues and that the points of disagreement need not be over-emphasized for the general public. At the same time differing views are presented, mostly emphasizing the assumptions on one hand, and the policy implication on the other. It illustrates each concept and result with examples drawn from the real world. Considerable effort is expended in analysing the supply-side in Europe, which is wholly neglected in US textbooks
