Praise for A Concise Guide to Macroeconomics Richard Vietor,
Senator John Heinz Professor of the Environment at Harvard Business
School; author of How Countries Compete--
"An incredibly clear and sophisticated introduction to macroeconomics." Robert Solow, Institute Professor Emeritus at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Nobel Laureate in Economics--
"Any critical observer of current debates about the state of the macro economy needs a clear understanding of a half-dozen basic concepts, how they are measured, and how they are connected. David Moss's short, jargon-free book provides just that. It does not tell you what should be done, but how to begin thinking about what should be done." Julio Rotemberg, William Ziegler Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School--
"An extraordinary pedagogical achievement. The tight focus on the macroeconomics that are essential for understanding the business environment and the lucidity of the writing make this an ideal text for business students and executives."
