Methodological Foundations of Macroeconomics

Keynes and Lucas

Methodological Foundations of Macroeconomics

This book is an investigation of the methodological and epistemological foundations of macroeconomic theory, based on an examination of the theories of Keynes and Lucas. It is divided into two parts. In the first Professor Vercelli discusses the methodological issues which lie behind the conflict among different schools of thought in macroeconomics (equilibrium and disequilibrium, risk and uncertainty, rationality and causality). These issues are central to the current debate not only in many branches of economics, but also in other scientific disciplines. The traditional point of view of science based on equilibrium, stability and determinism has been increasingly challenged by a new point of view in which disequilibrium, instability and uncertainty play a crucial role. This, the author argues, is bound to put macroeconomics in a new, more promising position. In the second part of the book the author compares the two main alternative research programmes in macroeconomics: that outlined by Keynes in his 'General Theory', and that suggested by Lucas, the leader of the new classical economists.

Macroeconomic Foundations of Macroeconomics

Contrary to common belief, macroeconomics is not merely a theory of aggregates, and cannot be constructed from individual behaviour. Both nationally and internationally, there are economic laws that are logically independent of economic agents’ behaviour. These are the macroeconomic foundations of macroeconomics. Presenting cutting-edge material, Alvaro Cencini explores these foundations, and shows that the introduction of money entails economics being interpreted conceptually not mathematically. His innovative book provides the elements for a new approach by applying the most recent results of monetary analysis to the study of national and international economics. It covers recent progress in monetary theory, provides the reader with a greater understanding of the subject, and will be essential reading for economic students as well as a valuable resource for economists.

Foundations of Macroeconomics Plus MyEconLab Student Access Kit

Foundations of Macroeconomics Plus MyEconLab Student Access Kit

Foundations of Macroeconomics was developed on the premise that economics is a core competency for the responsible citizen and a foundation tool for every type of career. The Bade/Parkin package is designed to encourage learning by doing. Each chapter concentrates on a manageable number of core concepts that are called out in the beginning-of-chapter Checklist. Students know what they're expected to learn and are given the chance to apply those lessons to real-world problems. Practice is the cornerstone of the innovative Bade/Parkin approach. A full page Checkpoint containing a Practice Problem with solution and a parallel Exercise immediately follows each main idea. Checkpoints serve as stopping points and encourage students to practice using a concept before moving on. Different learning styles need different learning tools, and Bade/Parkin's extensive and tightly integrated web environment puts students in the driver's seat and allows them to use technology in the way that suits them best.
