Editorial Reviews

"Since so much macroeconomics will soon be only of the open variety, it is good that a student will have such a thorough exposure within a macroeconomics book that covers so much else as well. The style is lucid throughout and reader-friendly. An excellent book." Megnad Desai, London School of Economics and Political Science
