Models for Dynamic Macroeconomics

February 28, 2008

This text's five chapters each covers a major topic in macroeconomics: consumption and saving, investment, labour market dynamics, growth and co-ordination problems. The mathematical exposition is thorough but not intimidating, and there are good pointers to empirical applications throughout.

Who is it for? Masters students in economics and possibly very ambitious undergraduates.

Presentation: Generally very good, but occasionally rushed.

Would you recommend it? I liked some chapters more than others. Those on investment and co-ordination are excellent; growth is treated better elsewhere.
