From the Back Cover
With the increasing globalisation of most economies, the importance of understanding how international linkages affect macroeconomic performance has never been greater. This text presents the core theoretical frameworks of international macroeconomics to explain the significance and behaviour of exchange rates, international competitiveness, interest rates, capital flows, current account balances, foreign investment, foreign debt and economic growth in open economies.
The book also examines traditional macroeconomic concerns such as inflation and unemployment, and the operation and effectiveness of fiscal and monetary policies, but from a perspective that stresses an economy¿s integration with global markets for goods, services and assets from start to finish. It is suitable for university students of macroeconomics, international economics and international business and also for professional economists.
Topics covered include:
- the globalisation debate
- exchange rate behaviour
- tradables, nontradables and the terms of trade
- saving, investment and the external accounts
- the effectiveness of macroeconomic policy
- asset markets, interest rates and exchange rates
- wages, employment and unemployment
- foreign investment and foreign debt
- economic growth in open economies
