Macroeconomics is an economics textbook for the students of M.Com written by Rudiger Dornbusch and Stanley Fischer.
Summary Of The Book
The authors in this edition have retained the balanced approach of the original edition of the book. They are keener on informing students about the established and the useful instead of the esoteric and speculative. Moreover, the authors do reflect the ever changing tone keeping in mind the changes that have taken place in the last decades in accordance with macroeconomics events and its research area. Also, in this edition the authors have deliberately cut down the content of the book and reduced it to one fourth of the original text.
