9780321311511: Macroeconomics: International Edition

At a time when so many pivotal economic issues are closely tied to the business cycle and monetary-fiscal policy, Robert Gordon provides critical insight into the American and global economy.

 

Macroeconomics builds from an early emphasis on business cycles and monetary-fiscal policy, in both the closed and open economy, to a dynamic analysis of aggregate demand and supply shocks as the causes of inflation and unemployment. Gordon then discusses economic growth using theory and real-world examples to compare rich and poor countries before examining economic growth in the United States.

 

In the Tenth Edition, Gordon tightens the overall framework of chapters, introduces four-color pedagogy, and prepares students to join in discussion and debate about the latest issues including the jobless recovery, recent tax cuts, globalization, and the ‘explosion’ of U.S. productivity growth.
