Structured Macroeconomics

(First Edition)
By Stephen Gillespie

Spiral Bound ISBN: 978-1-63487-967-5, 272 pages

©2016

Description
Structured Macroeconomics takes the content of standard, bulky textbooks in the field and pares it down to essential information. It then presents this information in digestible, bite-sized blocks.

Specific topics are easy to locate, making the book an ideal support tool for reviewing concepts presented in class. Each chapter includes a preview of the topic, a summary of the most important points, and a list of additional 1-2 page units that expand on that topic.

The material reviews microeconomics, provides an overview of the American economy, and introduces the principles of macroeconomics. It teaches students about gross domestic product, inflation, and aggregate supply and demand. Students will also learn about John Maynard Keynes and other classic economists, fiscal and monetary policy, the federal budget, and money and banking.

Structured Macroeconomics is designed for introductory courses in macroeconomics and economics principles. It can also be used in classes covering the American economy or as a reference text for those who have already completed introductory courses.
