About this title

Synopsis:

The global financial crisis triggered severe shocks for developing countries, whose embrace of greater commercial and financial openness has increased their exposure to external shocks, both real and financial. This new edition of Development Macroeconomics has been fully revised to address the more open and less stable environment in which developing countries operate today.

Describing the latest advances in this rapidly changing field, the book features expanded coverage of public debt and the management of capital inflows as well as new material on fiscal discipline, monetary policy regimes, currency, banking and sovereign debt crises, currency unions, and the choice of an exchange-rate regime. A new chapter on dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) models with financial frictions has been added to reflect how the financial crisis has reshaped our thinking on the role of such frictions in generating and propagating real and financial shocks. The book also discusses the role of macroprudential regulation, both independently and through its interactions with monetary policy, in preserving financial and macroeconomic stability.

Now in its fourth edition, Development Macroeconomics remains the definitive textbook on the macroeconomics of developing countries.

  • The most authoritative book on the subject―now fully revised and expanded
  • Features new material on fiscal discipline, monetary policy regimes, currency, banking and sovereign debt crises, and much more
  • Comes with online supplements on informal financial markets, stabilization programs, the solution of DSGE models with financial frictions, and exchange rate crises

From the Inside Flap:

"This updated and extended edition of Agénor and Montiel's excellent book includes in-depth analyses of pertinent issues put to the fore by the global financial crisis, and of the policy dilemmas arising from the growing exposure to external real and financial shocks associated with globalization. Development Macroeconomics remains the essential reference for scholars, graduate students, and practitioners interested in the macroeconomic challenges that developing countries continue to face."--Joshua Aizenman, University of Southern California

"Simply the best macroeconomic textbook for developing economies on the market today."--Olivier Blanchard, International Monetary Fund

"This continues to be the best treatise on macroeconomics theory and policy in emerging countries. It is profound and comprehensive. It looks at historical experiences with great care and extracts useful lessons for the future. This is a must-read for anyone interested in the economics of the future."--Sebastian Edwards, University of California, Los Angeles

Praise for the previous edition: "This new edition of Agénor and Montiel's excellent book expands and brings up to date the analysis and recent trends of the management of capital inflows, public and private debts, fiscal discipline, monetary policy regimes, financial crises and stabilization, currency unions, and the choice of an exchange-rate regime. This will remain the essential reference for scholars, graduate students, and practitioners interested in development macroeconomics."--Joshua Aizenman, University of California, Santa Cruz

Praise for the previous edition: "This is by far the best book on the macroeconomics of emerging countries. It covers the right topics, and the blend of theory and policy is masterful. A must-read for graduate students, analysts, and policymakers."--Sebastian Edwards, University of California, Los Angeles

Praise for the previous edition: "Agénor and Montiel have extensively rewritten their excellent book on macroeconomic theory, empirics, and policy experiences relevant to developing and emerging economies. This resulting volume is a brilliant and truly unique blend of frontier analytics, applied models, stylized facts, and policy experiences of developing countries. As a unified treatise in the field of development macroeconomics, Agénor and Montiel's new book is a primer for economic analysts, academic economists, policymakers, and students."--Klaus Schmidt-Hebbel, Central Bank of Chile
