As far as method is concerned, the emphasis is on solvability: all models presented are solvable, and solved. Simple, explicit assumptions are given, and only elementary mathematics is necessary. As far as scope is concerned, the emphasis is on synthesis: the author builds from simple models to households, firms and industries to more complex models of general economic equilibrium. Similarly, both micro and macro economic theory, the latter being built upon the former, are covered. Capital and interest theory and international trade theory are treated fully." Not Price Clipped.
