Current controversies in macroeconomics : an intermediate text

Howard R. Vane and John L. Thompson

This book aims to provide a concise yet rigorous discussion of major issues in modern macroeconomics, in particular in relation to the controversy over the role and conduct of macroeconomic stabilization policy, for students taking intermediate level undergraduate courses in macroeconomics. While the book is written in such a way as to allow students to read individual chapters in isolation, according to their interests and needs, the book follows a structured direction. After providing a review of mainstream macro-models and schools of thought in Chapter 1, subsequent chapters focus on selected key controversies surrounding the balance of payments and exchange rates (Chapter 2); inflation and unemployment (Chapter 3); money and economic activity (Chapter 4); fiscal policy and aggregate demand (Chapter 5) and business cycles (Chapter 6).
