Macroeconomics – Paperback – Wendy Carlin, David Soskice – Oxford University Press

You will enjoy every chapter, and become a good macroeconomist in the process. Imperfections, Impwrfections and Policies does just this.

The book is based on the mainstream monetary macro model which is now widely used by both academics and policy-makers.


In a straightforward manner, it shows how this model can be used to address an enormous variety of practical questions without heavy use of mathematical technique. Carlin and Soskice do the profession a great service by writing a textbook that makes these developments accessible to undergraduates.

The book presents macroeconomics at its best – as a useful framework for analyzing important questions. Furthermore, there is constantly an attempt to make the work relevant to practical questions of public policy.

There is a major final chapter addressing the issues of unemployment, especially among the larger nations of Continental Europe. The authors approach these questions through the penetrating analytical lens of their framework, critically address the empirical evidence and come up with sometimes novel conclusions to the conventional wisdom.

Too often it becomes an area of difficulty and confusion for students. This book is to be welcomed for its very clear vision of what contemporary macroeconomics is about and its careful exposition leading the student to this.
