9780132992794: Macroeconomics (2nd Edition)

Make the link between theory and real-world easier with the most up-to-date Intermediate Macroeconomics text on the market today!

 

Hubbard, O'Brien, and Rafferty realize that most students enrolled in today's intermediate macroeconomics courses are either undergraduate or masters students who are likely to become entrepreneurs, managers, bankers, stock brokers, accountants, lawyers, or government officials.  Very few students will pursue a Ph.D. in economics.  Given this student profile, Hubbard, O'Brien, and Rafferty's text presents  Intermediate Macroeconomics in the context of contemporary events, policy, and business with an integrated explanation of today's financial crisis.  Student and instructor feedback tells us that Hubbard, O'Brien, and Rafferty helps make the link between theory and real-world easier for students!

 

Available with the award-winning MyEconLab and grouped by Learning Objectives!

MyEconLab is a powerful assessment and tutorial system that works hand-in-hand with Intermediate Macroeconomics. MyEconLab includes comprehensive homework, quiz, test, and tutorial options, where instructors can manage all assessment needs in one program! 

 

Note: If you are purchasing the standalone text (ISBN: 0132992795) or electronic version, MyEconLab does not come automatically packaged with the text. To purchase MyEconLab, please visit: www.myeconlab.com or you can purchase a package of the physical text + MyEconLab by searching the Pearson Higher Education web site.

Review:

“The book places welcome emphasis on financial markets (both domestic and international).” - Mark Tandall, Stanford University

“Accessible, current, and relevant... students will enjoy the balance between model development and real-world applications. I really enjoyed the integration of the financial crisis, housing crash, oil shock and exchange rates. Wonderful!” - Carlos F. Liard-Muriente, Central Connecticut State University

“It is the best textbook to use in an Intermediate Macro course that emphasizes the ongoing financial crisis and its impact on the real economy. The discussion of the sovereign debt crisis in Europe in the second edition is valuable.” - Ted Burczak, Denison University
