Flexible OrganizationMacroeconomics, eighth edition is organized around two central parts: A core and a set of two major e xtensions.The text’s flexible organization emphasizes an integrated view of macroeconomics, while enabling professors tofocus on the theories, models, and applications that they deem central to their particular course.The flowchart below quickly illustrates how the chapters are organized and fit within the book’s overall structure.For a more detailed explanation of the Flexible Organization, and for an extensive list of Alternative Course Outlines, see pages xiii–xiv in the preface.INTRODUCTIONA Tour of the World Chapter 1A Tour of the Book Chapter 2THE COREThe Short RunThe Goods Market Chapter 3Financial Markets I Chapter 4Goods and Financial Markets: The IS-LM Model Chapter 5Financial Markets II: The Extended IS-LM Model Chapter 6The Medium RunThe Labor Market Chapter 7The Phillips Curve, the Natural Rate ofUnemployment, and Inflation Chapter 8From the Short to the Medium Run: The IS-LMPC Model Chapter 9The Long RunThe Facts of Growth Chapter 10Saving, Capital Accumulation, and Output Chapter 11Technological Progress and Growth Chapter 12The Challenges of Growth Chapter 13EXPECTATIONSTHE OPEN ECONOMYFinancial Markets and Expectations Chapter 14Expectations, Consumption, and Investment Chapter 15Expectations, Output, and Policy Chapter 16EXTENSIONSOpenness in Goods and Financial Markets Chapter 17The Goods Market in an Open Economy Chapter 18Output, the Interest Rate, and the Exchange Rate Chapter 19Exchange Rate Regimes Chapter 20BACK TO POLICYShould Policymakers Be Restrained?

Prefacetour of the world, from the United States, to the Euro area,and to China. Some instructors will prefer to cover Chapter 1 later, perhaps after Chapter 2, which introduces basicconcepts, articulates the notions of short run, medium run,and long run, and gives the reader a quick tour of the book.I had two main goals in writing this book: To make close contact with current macroeconomic events.What makes macroeconomics exciting is the light it shedson what is happening around the world, from the majoreconomic crisis which engulfed the world in the late 2000s,to monetary policy in the United States, to the problems ofthe Euro area, to growth in China. These events—and manymore—are described in the book, not in footnotes, but in thetext or in detailed boxes. Each box shows how you can usewhat you have learned to get an understanding of theseevents. My belief is that these boxes not only convey the lifeof macroeconomics, but also reinforce the lessons from themodels, making them more concrete and easier to grasp.While Chapter 2 gives the basics of national incomeaccounting, I have put a detailed treatment of nationalincome accounts in Appendix 1 at the end of the book.This decreases the burden on the beginning reader andallows for a more thorough treatment in the appendix. Chapters 3 through 6 focus on the short run. Chapters 3to 5 characterize equilibrium in the goods market and inthe financial markets, and derive the basic model used tostudy short-run movements in output, the IS-LM model.Chapter 6 extends the basic IS-LM model to reflect the roleof the financial system. It then uses it to describe whathappened during the initial phase of the financial crisis.To provide an integrated view of macroeconomics. Thebook is built on one underlying model, a model thatdraws the implications of equilibrium conditions in threesets of markets: the goods market, the financial markets,and the labor market. Depending on the issue at hand,the parts of the model relevant to the issue are developedin more detail while the other parts are simplified or lurkin the background. But the underlying model is alwaysthe same. This way, you will see macroeconomics as acoherent whole, not a collection of models. And you willbe able to make sense not only of past macroeconomicevents but also of those that unfold in the future.Chapters 7 through 9 focus on the medium run. Chapter 7 focuses on equilibrium in the labor market and introduces the notion of the natural rate of unemployment.Chapter 8 derives and discusses the relation between unemployment and inflation, known as the Phillips curve.Chapter 9 develops the IS-LM-PC (PC for P hillips curve)model which takes into account e quilibrium in the goodsmarket, in the financial markets, and in the labor market.It shows how this model can be used to understand movements in activity and movements in inflation, both in theshort and in the medium run.Solving Learning and TeachingChallengesFlexible OrganizationThe book is organized around two central parts: a core,and a set of two major extensions. An introduction precedes the core. The two extensions are followed by a reviewof the role of policy. The book ends with an epilogue. Theflowchart at the beginning of this book makes it easy to seehow the chapters are organized and fit within the book’soverall structure. Chapters 1 and 2 introduce the basic facts and issues ofmacroeconomics. Chapter 1 takes you on an economicChapters 3 through 13 constitute the core.Chapters 10 through 13 focus on the long run. Chapter 10describes the facts, showing the evolution of output acrosscountries and over long periods of time. Chapters 11 and 12develop a model of growth and describe how capital accumulation and technological progress determine growth.Chapter 13, which is new, focuses on the challenges togrowth, from inequality to climate change. Chapters 14 through 20 cover the two major extensions.Chapters 14 through 16 focus on the role of expectationsin the short run and in the medium run. Expectations playxiiiA01 BLAN7899 08 SE FM.indd 1314/11/19 5:20 PM

a major role in most economic decisions and, by implication, play a major role in the determination of output. A full semester course gives more than enough time tocover the core, plus one or both of the two extensions, andthe review of policy. The extensions assume knowledge ofthe core, but are otherwise mostly self-contained. Given thechoice, the order in which they are best taught is probablythe order in which they are presented in the book. Havingstudied the role of expectations first helps students to understand the interest parity condition and the nature of exchange rate crises.Chapters 17 through 20 examine the implications ofopenness of modern economies. Chapter 20 looks at theimplications of differen

Flexible Organization Macroeconomics, eighth edition is organized around two central parts: A core and a set of two major extensions. The text’s flexible organization emphasizes an integrated view of macroeconomics, while enabling professors to focus on the theories, models, and applications that they deem central to their particular course.
