Williamson’s Macroeconomics uses a thoroughly modern approach that is consistent with the way that macroeconomic research is conducted today. The text builds macroeconomic models from a foundation of microeconomic principles. This methodology prepares students for further study in economics by allowing deeper insight into growth processes and business cycles, integrating the study of macroeconomics with microeconomics, and maintaining consistency with current methods of macroeconomic research.
