Pressestimmen

"This amazingly comprehensive book provides a lucid explanation of modernmacroeconomic theory and applies the theory to a wide range of internationalissues. For reference and classroom use, it sets a new standard in openeconomy macroeconomics. The use of boxes and applications in anadvanced graduate text such as this is unorthodox, but extremelyeffective." John Campbell, Otto Eckstein Professor of Applied Economics, Harvard University "This is a landmark treatment of dynamic, open-economy macroeconomics--the only kind of macroeconomics that matters any more." Paul Romer, Graduate School of Business, Stanford University

Synopsis

"Foundations of International Macroeconomics" is a text that offers an integrative modern treatment of the core issues in open economy macroeconomics and finance. It is suitable for first-year graduate macroeconomics courses as well as graduate courses in international macroeconomics and finance. Each chapter incorporates an array of empirical evidence. For beginning students these examples should aid the understanding of the practical value of the economic models developed. For advanced researchers, they highlight key insights and conundrums in the field. Topic coverage includes intertemporal consumption and investment theory, government spending and budget deficits, finance theory and asset pricing, the implications of (and problems inherent in) international capital market integration, growth, inflation and seignorage, policy credibility, real and nominal exchange rate determination, and many topics such as speculative attacks, target exchange rate zones and parallels between immigration and capital mobility. Most main results are derived both for the small country and world economy cases.

The first seven chapters cover models of the real economy, while the final three chapters incorporate the economy's monetary side, including an approach to bridging the chasm between real and monetary models.

6 von 6 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Paul Kitney - University of Sydney (kitney@ozemail.com.au) am 10. Dezember 1998
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The authors recognized the problems with the way that the subject of open economy macroeconomics has been taught in graduate programs in the past. In particular, there was little agreement and no definitive text that tied together any unified theme. Eclectic reading lists, mainly from the 1960's and the 1970's, were provided on each subject area with major changes in analysis required to shift from one area to another. The counter argument from others in the field was that the modern literature lacked policy relevance. The authors' retort by claiming that the "classic approach" lacks internal consistency and the micro foundations required. Moreover, the older approach has been criticized for failing to deal with dynamics clearly and does not address many of the policy issues that are relevant today. With the exception of two chapters on money the text builds up from a single analytical framework to display several of the key results in international macroeconomics and growth. A rigorous approach based on the micro foundations of macroeconomics is used throughout the text. While this approach may be criticized for putting forward only a Neoclassical method, the authors have made an effort to include models of imperfections and some material based on Keynesian underpinnings. The text gives a current appreciation of the state of the literature in the field and as such is an excellent reference tool. The authors' vigilance in updating the material in the text via the web site is particularly appealing as it keeps it contemporary. For the targeted consumer: the graduate student (like myself) and certainly the academic, the level of sophistication is not prohibitive.

Excellent Textbook 8. März 2005
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
International economics is not my field, even if I do find it interesting. As a graduate student, I liked this book a lot. It is not brilliantly written, and it is at times rather dull reading. BUT it a VERY clear and modern treatment of an important subject by two of the best scholars in the field. Overall, it's a very "user-friendly" graduate textbook. Not very entertaining, but it allows you to go through the material (much of it rather advanced) without too much pain, and without many leaps of faith (or pages of algebra) to go from one equation to the next. And there are many well developed applications which will help you see how the theory relates to the real world. There are many exercises to test your (or your students') knowledge of the field, whose solutions are also separately available.

Being this a graduate textbook, reading it requires a strong technical background, so if you are simply looking for a book to deepen your knowledge of a subject that you may only know through op-ed pieces, you should probably look elsewhere (e.g. undergraduate textbooks such as Krugman and Obstfeld). But if you are looking for an advanced but approachable and modern treatment of international macro, this book would be a very good bet. Highly recommended.

Here are some details about the book:

7 Global Linkages and Economic Growth

8 Money and Exchange Rates under Flexible Prices

9 Nominal Price Rigidities: Empirical Facts and Basic Open-Economy Models

10 Sticky-Price Models of Output, the Exchange Rate, and the Current Account

Some examples of the applications

- Energy Prices, Global Saving, and Real Interest Rates

- The Relative Impact of Productivity Shocks on Investment and the Current Account

a must-have for your private library 13. Oktober 2002
Von man - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Currently I'm using this book for my class called Trade and Economic Growth I II. The nuances of microeconomic foundations found in chapters 1 to 5 are used to explain and develop the concepts studied in open economy macroeconomics and international finance; so it is recommended that you understand fully the first three chapters of this book at least to understand the rest. The authors try to explain the concepts as clear as possible; however, you have to derive for yourself the equations that appear in the text, which is a challenge for most first year graduate students who are not yet proficient in using the tools of static/dynamic optimization, etc. A reference on mathematical economics such as Chiang's "Fundamental methods of math. econ.," and "Elements of dynamic optimization," or Simon Blume's "Mathematics for economists" should be kept near at hand. Nevertheless, there are many real-world examples that help clarify matters and make the this book more readable and interesting.

Invaluable Resource... 4. August 2012
Von Thorstein Veblen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I can confirm what others have posted -- this is a very helpful introduction into International Macro. The authors make it easy to work from one equation to the next, but without actually giving you every step. They did a nice job with the questions at the end of each chapter, and on the whole created an invaluable academic resource. I heartily recommend it to any academic economist in macro or international, or who is interested in the subject.

The book does now need to be updated, and here would be some of my suggestions for how to do it:
1. The chapter on economic growth should actually be entitled models of economic growth. Or simply axed altogether -- although the profession is perhaps more to blame than the authors. Even so, they might have introduced the growth implications of new trade theory instead of the garbage in the chapter.
2. Along those lines, it might have been a good idea to swap growth for economic geography.
3. New Trade Theory needs a hearing... -- obviously recent Melitz-ish hetero agent macro models here would belong in a new volume. Along same lines, hysteresis is barely mentioned.
4. The point of the book is really to teach models to grad students -- and it does a wonderful job there. And the models often do have insight. I really liked the examples from economic history, the empirical applications, and the discussions -- so much so that I'd like to see even more. Which is to say, my desire is really to read a graduate textbook in which the authors try to simply teach the material, and just uses math as a tool, rather than focusing on the tools over the material. Still, the book does contain a lot of insight, so to ask for even more is to be greedy.
