In questa nuova edizione il libro si configura come un manuale di macro- economia pensato per i corsi di laurea triennale. L’esposizione degli argomenti, semplice e rigorosa dal punto di vista analitico, permette infatti di fornire una solida preparazione macroeconomica di base attraverso la costruzione di uno schema analitico in grado di offrire una chiave di lettura efficace per l’interpretazione dei problemi economici fondamentali. All’introduzione e al capitolo sulla contabilità nazionale, seguono i capitoli che coprono il materiale tipico della Sintesi neoclassica. Si presentano, infatti, in successione il più semplice modello keynesiano (modello reddito-spesa), i modelli IS-LM, AD-AS e la curva di Phillips. Segue un capitolo sull’equilibrio del mercato del lavoro con conflitto distributivo che permette di derivare un modello AD/AS dinamico in condizioni di concorrenza imperfetta. Si passa quindi alla macroeconomia di un’economia aperta e agli effetti delle politiche economiche con prezzi fissi e flessibili. Seguono, infine, alcuni capitoli di approfondimento relativi a consumo, risparmio e investimento, domanda e offerta di moneta, crescita.

This book arose from our conviction that the NNS-DSGE approach to the analysis of aggregate market outcomes is fundamentally flawed. The practice of overcoming the SMD result by recurring to a fictitious RA leads to insurmountable methodological problems and lies at the root of DSGE models’ failure to satisfactorily explain real world features, like exchange rate and banking crises, bubbles and herding in financial markets, swings in the sentiment of consumers and entrepreneurs, asymmetries and persistence in aggregate variables, and so on. At odds with this view, our critique rests on the premise that any modern macroeconomy should be modeled instead as a complex system of heterogeneous interacting individuals, acting adaptively and autonomously according to simple and empirically validated rules of thumb. We call our proposed approach Bottom-up Adaptive Macroeconomics (BAM). The reason why we claim that the contents of this book can be inscribed in the realm of macroeconomics is threefold: i) We are looking for a framework that helps us to think coherently about the interrelationships among two or more markets. In what follows, in particular, three markets will be considered: the markets for goods, labor and loanable funds. In this respect, real time matters: what happens in one market depends on what has happened, on what is happening, or on what will happen in other markets. This implies that intertemporal coordination issues cannot be ignored. ii) Eventually, it’s all about prices and quantities. However, we are mostly interested in aggregate prices and quantities, that is indexes built from the dispersed outcomes of the decentralized transactions of a large population of heterogeneous individuals. Each individual acts purposefully, but she knows anything about the levels of prices and quantities which clear markets in the aggregate. iii) In the hope of being allowed to purport scientific claims, BAM relies on the assumption that individual purposeful behaviours aggregates into regularities. Macro behaviour, however, can depart radically from what the individual units are trying to accomplish. It is in this sense that aggregate outcomes emerge from individual actions and interactions.

A Unified View of the Latest Macroeconomic Events In Macroeconomics, European Edition Blanchard, Giavazzi and Amighini present a unified, global and European view of macroeconomics, enabling students to see the connections between goods markets, financial markets, and labour markets worldwide. Organized into two parts, the text contains a core section that focuses on short-, medium-, and long-run markets and three major extensions that offer more in-depth coverage of the issues at hand. From the major economic crisis and monetary policy in Europe and globally to growth in China, the text helps students make sense not only of current macroeconomic events but also of events that may unfold in the future. Integrated, detailed boxes in the Third European Edition have been updated to convey the life of macroeconomics today; reinforce lessons from the models; and help students employ and develop their analytical and evaluative skills. This book gives students a thorough understanding of macroeconomics by taking a unified view of the subject, allowing connections to be made between the short, medium and long run. Re-written almost from scratch in light of the experience of the Great Recession, this text is essential reading for anyone studying macroeconomics in the aftermath of the financial crisis.

"The Incomplete Currency explains the reasons that are at the root of the current unsolved Euro zone crisis: The architecture of the Euro, the relationship between finance and the real economy, the functioning of the Eurosystem and how the unique currency has changed EU countries' economies are all topics analysed and illustrated in an elementary yet rigorous way, making extensive use of examples, tables, and numerous coloured graphics. Datasets and their statistical elaborations support the arguments illustrated throughout the book. Facts, not theories, matter: every assumption and statement is justified with strong evidence and data. In a macroeconomic context where the monetary policy is the prerogative of the European Central Bank and fiscal policy. Hopeless austerity works against the economic recovery of the Euro Zone countries, a positive attitude is difficult but necessary. Therefore, from the perspectives of solutions available to restore the unique interest rate curve, the reader is guided through a reasoned journey that carefully considers the pros and the cons of each possible solution and its implications"--

This valuable book contributes substantively to the current state-of-the-art of macroeconomics. It provides a method for building models in which business cycles and economic growth emerge from the interactions of a large number of heterogeneous agents. Drawing from recent advances in agent-based computational modeling, the authors show how insights from dispersed fields can be fruitfully combined to improve our understanding of macroeconomic dynamics.

Un lavoro collettivo di un gruppo di autori che gode solida notorietà nella comunità internazionale degli economisti eterodossi: «Questo libro è in primo luogo una denuncia delle politiche folli che in Europa e in Italia porteranno inevitabilmente - e in proporzioni sconosciute da generazioni - ad alti livelli di disoccupazione, crollo degli standard di consumo e dei servizi sociali e degrado delle nostre comunità. Vogliamo smentire le sciocchezze in nome delle quali si chiedono sacrifici. In particolare, che spesa e debito pubblico siano causa ultima della crisi. E vogliamo mostrare come questi sacrifici a nulla porteranno tranne che a un avvitamento verso il basso della crisi. Non mettiamo sotto accusa il processo d'integrazione politica ed economica europeo. Bensì, quello di unificazione monetaria, interpretato da parte dei governi italiani come strumento di disciplina sindacale e sociale». Dedicato a tutti i giovani.
