Endorsements There is no real precedent for this original book. The authors have taken a field in which there are often quite different models authors have taken a field in which there are often quite different models that sometimes yield quite disparate results, and have provided a unifying framework for examining the issues. An aspect that I find especially appealing is that the text does not assume much background on the part of students. Ostfeld and Rogoff provide a framework for understanding these issues that is firmly grounded in economic theory and rich in its empirical insights and predictions. Their book will no doubt be the most widely used text for graduate education during the next decade.

Rogoff "This amazingly comprehensive book provides a lucid explanation of modern macroeconomic theory and applies the theory to a wide range of international issues. For reference and classroom use, it sets a new standard in open economy macroeconomics.
The use of boxes and applications in an advanced graduate text such as this is unorthodox, but extremely effective. With its clear and accessible style, it is suitable for first-year graduate macroeconomics courses as well as graduate courses in international macroeconomics and finance. Each chapter incorporates an extensive and eclectic array of empirical evidence. For the beginning student, these examples provide motivation and aid in understanding the practical value of the economic models developed.
For advanced researchers, they highlight key insights and conundrums in the field. Topic coverage includes intertemporal consumption and investment theory, government spending and budget deficits, finance theory and asset pricing, the implications of and problems inherent in international capital market integration, growth, inflation and seignorage, policy credibility, real and nominal exchange rate determination, and many interesting special topics such as speculative attacks, target exchange rate zones, and parallels between immigration and capital mobility.
Most main results are derived both for the small country and world economy cases. More about the book Categories:.
