Macroeconomics

Charles I. Jones

The only fully modern macroeconomics text on the market, and the most accessible one for undergraduates.

Macroeconomics brings together up-to-date coverage of the ongoing economic crisis and the concepts behind macroeconomics today into a teachable, coherent whole. Today’s macroeconomics stresses the importance of monetary policy in the short run, and the need to treat the Fed in a realistic way. Macroeconomics uses the IS/MP model, and features the most modern treatment of growth, with complete, accessible coverage of the Romer model. Macroeconomics also includes complete coverage of the ongoing economic crisis, with two full chapters of discussion and analysis, updated examples throughout the text, and two brand new chapters on the “micro foundations” of macro (Consumption and Investment) influenced by the crisis.

Charles I. Jones is the STANCO Professor of Economics at the Stanford University Graduate School of Business. He is also a Research Associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research. He received his Ph.D. from MIT in 1993. He is well known for his research and papers on long-run economic growth. Jones is equally well known as an educator with a gift for distilling complicated subjects down to their essence and making them accessible to all levels of students. He is the author of Introduction to Economic Growth, Third Edition (2013).
