9780745336824: Macroeconomics: A Critical Companion (IIPPE)

Macroeconomics is fundamental to our understanding of how the world functions today. But too often our understanding is based on orthodox, dogmatic analysis. This distinctive book draws upon years of critical questioning and teaching and exposes how macroeconomic theory has evolved from its origins to its current impoverished and extreme state. Moving from the Keynesian Revolution to the Monetarist Counter-Revolution, through to New Classical Economics and New Consensus Macroeconomics, the authors both elaborate and question the methods and content of macroeconomic theory at a level appropriate for both undergraduate and postgraduate studies. Macroeconomics Macroeconomics provides a unique alternative to the multitude of standard textbooks by locating macroeconomic theory in its own history. It will be perfect for those studying macroeconomics, as well as for those looking for a new way to understand our increasingly complicated economic system. It is accompanied by a counterpart Microeconomics: A Critical Companion.

About the Author:

Ben Fine is Professor of Economics at SOAS, University of London. He is the author of the critical texts, Macroeconomics (with Ourania Dimakou) and Microeconomics (Pluto, 2016), co-author of co-author of Marx's 'Capital' (Pluto, 2016) and co-editor of Beyond the Developmental State: Industrial Policy into the 21st Century (Pluto, 2013). He was awarded both the Deutscher and Myrdal Prizes in 2009.

Review:

"Almost a decade after a crisis that mainstream economists thought was impossible, they continue to peddle the same basic theories of equilibrium and money neutrality. Students who are justifiably dissatisfied with this fare should consult these books, which distill Ben Fine’s forty years of being a thorn in the side of mainstream economics."
  (Steve Keen, author of Debunking Economics)

"In this welcome new volume, Fine and Dimakou successfully critically interrogate the major strands of contemporary mainstream macroeconomics." (Jomo Kwame Sundaram, former United Nations Assistant Secretary-General for economic analysis (2005-2015), recipient of Wassily Leontief Prize for Advancing the Frontiers of Economic Thought (2007))

"These wonderful volumes are what many teachers and students of economics have been waiting for—textbooks that are logical, critical, accessible and relevant. Designed to encourage understanding rather than mechanical application of techniques, they will help readers to develop a framework that allows them to understand what is actually going on in economies today." (Jayati Ghosh, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi)

"Building on his years of experience, Fine and Dimakou have created an accessible and rich resource for those who appreciate critical and creative approaches. This and its companion microeconomics volume contain numerous valuable insights for the serious student of economics. They go a long way towards countering the paring down of economics as presented in mainstream texts." (Stuart Birks, head of the World Economics Association’s Textbook Commentaries Project, Teaching Economics)
