This textbook fills a much needed gap between standard intermediate macro textbooks and the more advanced ones used in Ph.D training. It takes the student by the hand to lift them out of IS-LM and introduce them gently to the tools used in todays macroeconomic research. * Professor David de la Croix, Professor of Economics, Universite catholique de Louvain * This wonderful book provides a balanced and accessible account of modern macroeconomic theory. Both neoclassical and New Keynesian theories are presented in a consistent framework. Graduate students as well as advanced undergraduate students will find it an invaluable source of information. * Dirk Krueger, Professor, Department of Economics, University of Pennsylvania * A remarkably clear and coherent presentation of nearly all the analytical and conceptual tools one needs to be a good macroeconomist, from the short run to the long run, from simple to more complex models, from the closed to the open economy. An impressive tour de force. * Olivier Blanchard, Robert Solow Professor of Economics, Emeritus, MIT; Fred Bergsten Senior Fellow, Peterson Institute for International Economics * This is a good addition to the textbook market. The coverage of topics is comprehensive and it takes students from an intermediate to graduate level with commendable ease * Shaun Hargreaves Heap, University of East Anglia * Review from previous edition This book will be an extremely valuable addition to the reading list for core graduate macroeconomics courses. It provides a fair and balanced account of the different schools of macroeconomic thought and the current state of the discipline. A large number of topics are treated; the sections which cover technical material are particularly praiseworthy. The authors convey a sense of enthusiasm about the subject and show that
macroeconomics can, indeed, be exciting * Professor John Fender, University of Birmingham *
