Michael Wickens

Book Description
Chapter 1 [in PDF format] | Table of Contents [PDF only]


Praise for the previous edition: "A most welcome graduate (or advanced undergraduate) textbook in macroeconomics. The book is well written and the text is effectively organized and progresses in a natural and easy-to-follow way. The text offers a mathematical approach that is easily accessible to the students. The technical level is sufficiently detailed to allow students to understand the role of the underlying assumptions and how the models work, and yet it avoids unnecessary technicalities and sidetracks. As an extra bonus, it offers a treatment of financial aspects which are often neglected in macro textbooks."--Torben M. Andersen, University of Aarhus, Denmark

Praise for the previous edition: "Wickens's text provides a tremendous introduction to modern macroeconomics. The coverage of material is thorough. The writing is clear and lively. The mathematics is sufficiently detailed without being overly technical, and the mathematical appendix helps keep the text largely self-contained. Intuition behind key results is provided beautifully throughout. Having worked through the text, students will be well-equipped for a journey toward the macroeconomics frontier."--David N. DeJong, University of Pittsburgh

Praise for the previous edition: "This is a first-rate book that definitely helps fill a surprising lacuna in graduate macro teaching."--Andrew Scott, London Business School

Praise for the previous edition: "This book provides an integrated, self-contained, and accessible exposition of modern macroeconomic theory. Particular strengths include coverage of macroeconomic approaches to asset pricing and the analysis of monetary and fiscal policies. It is an excellent textbook for students in masters and PhD courses and an excellent reference for professional economists."--Philip Lane, Trinity College Dublin
