Présentation de l'éditeur

Introducing Advanced Macroeconomics: Growth and Business Cycles, 2nd edition provides students with a thorough understanding of fundamental models in macroeconomics and introduces them to methods of formal macroeconomic analysis. Split into two sections, the first half of the book focuses on macroeconomics for the long run, introducing and developing basic models of growth and structural unemployment. The second half of the book deals with the economy in the short run, focusing on the explanation of business fluctuations. This new edition retains the popular pitch and level established in the 1st edition and continues to bridge the gap between intermediate macroeconomics texts and more advanced textbooks.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A great text in a poorly bound book 9 février 2015
Par Alexander - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I am convinced that this is a brilliant book on advanced macroeconomics (well, perhaps "lower advanced" or "introductory advanced") for those of us who did not graduate from MIT et al. Very well written and up to the point. One of the reviewers says that it is too long - well, that is the classical trade-off: you either have a brief book or one with detailed explanations of the logic behind the models. Personally I vote for the second option which is especially useful when you use the book for self-study rather than to support your university classes.
The book is indeed very good at closing the gap between intermediate and advanced macro courses - thus it reaches exactly the goal the authors declare in the preface to the book.
The only bad thing that I can say about the book is that its binding is of extremely low quality. My copy is very close to becoming two thinner ones (and I have only read less than a quarter of the text so far), and I guess it is not long before pages start explicitly falling out from the book. I hope the publisher will take note and will do a better job when preparing the next edition. For the owners of the 2nd edition, a visit to the bookbinders soon after receiving the book may be a natural choice.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Very Solid Textbook 2 mars 2011
Par Peter B. Klibowitz - Publié sur Amazon.com

I'm using this textbook has part of my Master's program. The textbook has a good combination of theory and empirical results. They break down the concepts so that they are understandable and keep you from feeling lost. Finally the textbook builds upon itself in a logical sequence.

This book was sent to me within a couple of days (much prior to estimated delivery date) and it was packaged in a proper manner.

I am borrowing this book from a fellow student for a unit in Advanced Macroeconomics.

As another reviewer mentioned, there are 30 odd pages missing - most of chapter 24, which is on the AS-AD model in an open economy with a fixed exchange rate.

The writing is very convoluted and unnecessary long, it is hard work to read.

It is like having to listening to some boring old windbag who loves the sound of his own voice. It might be ok to present with a long chatty style for a short book, but at over 800 pages it is just painful. It makes it extremely difficult to sort the wheat from the chaff.

I would only buy this if I had to (in my case I managed to borrow it) for a course, but you you can do a lot better with a Google search and finding some decent slides from Harvard, MIT etc.

Macro-Economics is wooly enough without books like this.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Very solid textbook with great efforts but could still be replaced by using Blanchard's and Romer's books 29 avril 2015
Par Nahua Kang - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I am a bachelor economics student in an European business school. I have used the first half of this book for Solow Model and Growth Theory. I will offer my own opinion, which might be biased.

I appreciate these two Danish authors' efforts in writing a textbook that would bridge the advanced macroeconomics of bachelor's level and the macroeconomics at the level of Master's or of 1st-year PhD. In terms of growth modeling (Solow), which is the part that I read, this book does a great job. Each chapter builds on the previous one and adds one or two additional parameters (tech growth, human capital, natural resources, etc.) to the model. The exercises at the end of each chapter enhance a student's understanding of the content(with some extra, interesting contents), ability to do decent economic analysis(data processing, regression), skills to program simulation with statistical software(although you can do it also in Excel). The authors also try to explain the model/theory by relating it to microeconomics, which is also good.

This book is very thick as the authors try to explain everything in as detailed sentences as they possible can. So I imagine this book would be a great material for those who want to do self-studies. However, this book is quite similar to some other textbooks written by European scholars, such as the Macroeconomics by Manfred Gaertner, in that the style of writing seems too rigid and flat to me. It is sometimes difficult to concentrate on the material for long. But because it tries to explain slowly all the points, it is much much easier to understand than Gaertner's book, which is dense and somewhat difficult to understand. Olivier Blanchard's renowned textbook Macroeconomics, on the other hand, is very well-written and very easy to follow. For me personally, reading Blanchard's book is like reading Catch 22, vivid and engaging; this book is like In Search of the Lost Time, long and beautiful but sometimes exhausting. So if you are looking for textbooks, I would still recommend Blanchard's Macroeconomics and Romer's Advanced Macroeconomics rather than this book.

In terms of math, this book requires only the most basic understanding of partial derivatives and algebra and there's no advanced mathematics involved. Therefore from time to time I wish we are reading Romer's book with more mathematics. This could be a good news for those who are weak in math and bad for those who are ready to learn in a more concise format with more math. I hope this review helps as it is my first written review for a book on Amazon :)
