Colander, David, Gamber, Edward, Macroeconomics*/ This fun-to-read book contains a policy-oriented, up-to-date approach to macroeconomics. Its humble approach recognizes the fact that economists do not have all the answers, and presents modern macroeconomics with a lively and entertaining writing style and a minimum of technical models. A four-part organization provides an introduction to intermediate macroeconomics, then covers growth and the long run, fluctuations and the short run, and institutional foundations of macroeconomic policy. For policy macro economists.
