Macroeconomics is widely praised for its ability to present theory as a way of evaluating key macro questions, such as why some countries are rich and others are poor. Students have a natural interest in what is happening today and what will happen in the near future. Macroeconomics capitalizes on their interest by beginning with business cycles and monetary-fiscal policy in both closed and open economy. After that, Gordon presents a unique dynamic analysis of demand and supply shocks as causes of inflation and unemployment, followed by a dual approach to economic growth in which theory and real-world examples are used to compare rich and poor countries.

International Finance and Open-Economy Macroeconomics

This rigorous textbook tames technicalities and makes even the most complex models accessible to students. Its unique two-tier structure makes the book attractive for undergraduates, graduates and researchers alike. In fact, the coverage is primarily directed to undergraduate students and is mainly confined to graphic analysis and to some elementary algebra. Further, each chapter has its own mathematical appendix, in which (i) the topics treated in the text are examined at a level suitable for advanced undergraduates, graduates and researchers, and (ii) generalizations and/or topics not treated in the text (including some at the cutting edge of research) are formally examined. The new edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to reflect the latest research on international finance. This book deals with the financial side of international economics and covers all aspects of international finance. There are many books and articles by exponents of alternative points of view. I know of no other book that provides the scope, balance, objectivity and rigor of this book. the late Professor Jerome L. Stein, Brown University This book is a second edition of a volume on international finance first published in 2001. Like Giancarlo’s other books in International Economics, this book is organised as a two-books-in-one by distributing the material between text and appendices. The text provides coverage suitable for an undergraduate course while the mathematical appendices provide coverage of the topics at the frontier of the discipline and suitable for advanced undergraduate or graduate students in an international finance and international macroeconomics course. This edition updates the earlier volume and covers all the classic topics as well as the more recent advances in the theory and modelling of international finance. It includes some discussion of the empirical testing of these theories and where appropriate reference to the extensive empirical literature is also provided. This book is a valuable addition to the bookshelf of any serious International Finance Scholar and provides a treasure chest of material for any quality international finance course. Professor Pasquale M Sgro, Deakin University Giancarlo Gandolfo is one of the profession's most gifted textbook authors on mathematical modeling and international economics. His revised International Finance and Open-Economy Macroeconomics is remarkable for its scope and clarity. The book covers the older and intertemporal approaches, and topics that are usually left out of graduate treatments (the chapter on balance-of-payments accounting is a gem). Gandolfo's two-tier approach of first developing topics with graphs and basic algebra and then providing rigorous mathematics for each topic makes the book ideal for advanced undergraduate and graduate classes.

Im Jahr 1990 erlebte Japan eine nie gekannte Wirtschaftskrise. Binnen Jahresfrist verlor der Nikkei-Index über 40 Prozent. Die fallenden Börsen schlugen bis auf den Immobilienmarkt durch. Banken sperrten Kredite, Firmen mussten Insolvenz anmelden, Grundstückspreise fielen, bis sie 1996 in den Städten 50 Prozent unter den Höchstwerten vor 1990 lagen. Noch heute spürt Japan die Folgen dieser Krise. Richard A. Werner war über ein Jahrzehnt in Japan und erlebte hautnah das Entstehen dieser Krise und die Versuche, die Rezession zu bekämpfen, mit. In seinem Werk zieht er die Parallelen zwischen der damaligen Situation in Asien und unserer heutigen in Europa. Er zeigt, mit welchen politischen und wirtschaftlichen Strategien, Japan der damaligen Situation Herr zu werden versuchte, welche Fehler gemacht wurden und was erfolgreich war.

Implikationen der Theorie realer Konjunkturzyklen für die Stabilisierungspolitik


Author: Dirk Stelzer

Inhaltsangabe:Einleitung: Die Erklärung konjunktureller Schwankungen gerät immer dann verstärkt ins Blickfeld sowohl des wissenschaftlichen als auch des allgemein gesellschaftlichen Interesses, wenn sie für viele Personen merklich spürbare Auswirkungen bedeuten. Während in einem wirtschaftlichen Abschwung die Arbeitslosigkeit steigt, erhöhen sich in einem konjunkturellen Aufschwung die Preise. Da für die Wirtschaftssubjekte derartige Schwankungen mit Nutzeneinbußen verbunden sind, sollten Maßnahmen getroffen werden, um diese Fluktuationen zu beseitigen oder deren Ausmaße zu dämpfen. Eines der fundamentalsten Probleme der Wirtschaftswissenschaften ist die Frage, worin die Ursachen von Konjunkturschwankungen bestehen. Häufige Erklärungen basieren auf realen Ursachen wie Klimaschwankungen und Naturkatastrophen, die sich insb. auf die Landwirtschaft auswirken. Darüber hinaus bewirken technische Innovationen neue Möglichkeiten für den industriellen Sektor. Auch monetäre Ursachen werden für konjunkturelle Schwankungen verantwortlich gemacht. Durch eine temporäre Über- bzw. Unterversorgung der Wirtschaft mit Geld entstehen Fluktuationen sowohl im nominalen als auch im realen Sektor. Des Weiteren spielen die Erwartungen der Wirtschaftssubjekte eine wichtige Rolle bei Konsum- und Investitionsentscheidungen, weswegen auch sie häufig als Ursache für konjunkturelle Schwankungen angesehen werden. Ausgehend und begleitet von diesen Ansätzen entwickelte sich eine Forschungsrichtung, die Konjunkturschwankungen auf Veränderungen im realen Sektor der Wirtschaft zurückführt: Die Theorie realer Konjunkturzyklen. Dieses allgemeine Gleichgewichtsmodell beruht auf einem dynamischen, mikroökonomischen Optimierungskalkül sowie auf der Annahme rationaler Erwartungen. Zudem sind alle Märkte aufgrund flexibler Preise ständig geräumt. Reale, exogene Technologieschocks bewirken Anpassungsprozesse der Wirtschaftssubjekte und sorgen für die Ausbreitung des konjunkturellen Impulses. Den Modellen der realen Konjunkturtheorie ist es gelungen, einen Großteil der stilisierten Fakten nachzuzeichnen. Auch aufgrund der formalen Eleganz entwickelten sie sich im Verlaufe der 80er Jahre zur dominierenden Konjunkturtheorie. Gang der Untersuchung: Das Ziel dieser Arbeit ist es, die Stabilisierungspolitik im Rahmen der Theorie realer Konjunkturzyklen zu untersuchen. Zu diesem Zweck wird in Kapitel 2 das Grundmodell der realen Konjunkturtheorie dargestellt. Aufgrund der [...]
