Prices, Interest Rates and Aggregate Output: An Overview of Macroeconomics is intended to support an introductory undergraduate course in macroeconomics. Written in a rigorous yet accessible style, it is aimed not only at students whose major subject is economics but also at others who want to acquire some theoretical background to current economic issues.
Despite being an introduction to the subject, the approach is not superficial and complex issues are not ignored. Particular attention is devoted to the international constraints on the domestic economy. As usual in economic matters, the conclusions are frequently tentative. Economic theory does not always provide answers. It does, however, encourage the reader to ask useful questions - and that is one of the aims of this book.
No previous study of macroeconomics is assumed, although successful completion of an introductory course in microeconomics would be an advantage. Advanced mathematical skills are not required.
