Foundations of Modern Macroeconomics – Ben J. Heijdra – 2nd Edition


Highlights of this new edition:
– Chapters substantially revised to reflect current thinking in macroeconomics
– Includes 31 boxed case studies that are easily cross-referenced
– New material added and empirical data updated to better reflect labour market developments during the last three decades
– Streamlined mathematical appendix

can seem a daunting prospect. Complex and poorly defined, infected with a variety of conflicting approaches, it is difficult for the to get an overall picture of what there is and how it fits in. Foundations of Modern is aimed at getting round this fundamental problem: it deals with all the major topics, summarizes the important approaches, and gives a coherent angle on all aspects of thought. Each chapter deals with a separate area of macroeconomics, and each contains a summary section of key points and a further list, enabling the student to check what has been learnt and investigate further in other books.
