Arrives in 3-7 Business Days
At a time when so many pivotal economic issues are closely tied to the business cycle and monetary-fiscal policy, Robert Gordon provides critical insight into the American and global economy. Macroeconomics builds from an early emphasis on business cycles and monetary-fiscal policy, in both the closed and open economy, to a dynamic analysis of aggregate demand and supply shocks as the causes of inflation and unemployment. Gordon then discusses economic growth using theory and real-world examples to compare rich and poor countries before examining economic growth in the United States. In the Tenth Edition, Gordon tightens the overall framework of chapters, introduces four-color pedagogy, and prepares students to join in discussion and debate about the latest issues including the jobless recovery, recent tax cuts, globalization, and the `explosion' of U.S. productivity growth.
