Editorial Reviews

Review

I read this title with great interest, and found the content really cogent. It is beautifully and clearly written, and is right up-to-date. The analysis of the credit crunch is timely, and the analysis is authoritative. The Chapter on the dynamics of aggregate demand and supply is superb. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

More About the Author

N. Gregory Mankiw is Professor of Economics at Harvard University. As a student, he studied economics at Princeton University and MIT. As a teacher, he has taught macroeconomics, microeconomics, statistics, and principles of economics. He even spent one summer long ago as a sailing instructor on Long Beach Island.

Professor Mankiw is a prolific writer and a regular participant in academic and policy debates. His research includes work on price adjustment, consumer behavior, financial markets, monetary and fiscal policy, and economic growth. His published articles have appeared in academic journals, such as the "American Economic Review", "Journal of Political Economy", and "Quarterly Journal of Economics", and in more widely accessible forums, such as "The New York Times", "The Washington Post", "The Wall Street Journal", and "Fortune".

He has written two popular textbooks--the intermediate-level textbook Macroeconomics (Worth Publishers) and the introductory textbook Principles of Economics (South-Western/Thomson). Principles of Economics has sold over a million copies and has been translated into twenty languages.

In addition to his teaching, research, and writing, Professor Mankiw has been a research associate of the National Bureau of Economic Research, an adviser to the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston and the Congressional Budget Office, and a member of the ETS test development committee for the advanced placement exam in economics. From 2003 to 2005 he served as Chairman of the President's Council of Economic Advisers.

5.0 out of 5 stars can I shed some light? December 19, 2009
Format:Hardcover
If you're confused about all of Dr. Mankiw's different macroeconomics texts floating about out there, lemme try to set you straight.

The one you see on this page: "Macroeconomics" is usually used in 2nd or 3rd year macroeconomics courses in college. This is because the exercises at the end of each chapter can be a little equation-intensive, and some of the exercises, such as the proper derivation of the IS-LM curve, require differentiation. The text of each chapter itself is not so vicious, so a energetic instructor could conceivably use this book in a lower-level course, if you were willing replace the book's exercises with easier ones.

Anyhow, the seventh edition has just come out: this has a bluish abstract geometric-type design on a tan background. The ISBN-13 is 9781429238120. The sixth edition had a blue cover; the fifth edition had an orange cover. The publisher, Palgrave-MacMillan, claims that the seventh edition balances "short-run and long-run issues in a way that emphasizes the relevance of Keynesian and classical ideas to current practice. Featuring the latest data and extensive coverage of the current financial crisis, the text has also been revised with the addition of new case studies on real-world issues such as President Obama's stimulus plan and a study of hyperinflation in Zimbabwe."

Mankiw is also well-known as the author of "Principles of Macroeconomics," currently in its fifth edition (ISBN-10: 0324589972; ISBN-13: 978-0324589979), at least as of my writing. This text is more appropriate for freshman-level, non-major survey courses, or for high-school courses provided that they're honors courses, such as AP courses. The exercises at the end of each chapter require only arithmetic and the most rudimentary algebra.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great textbook March 15, 2011
By SAB
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Educational, concise, readable.
What more could you ask for in a textbook?

I have trouble sitting down and actually reading textbooks, but I found this textbook enjoyable. The author breaks the text up into manageable sections. Helpful anecdotes are separated as well, so that the text seems shorter. The reader soon realizes that these anecdotes are interesting and is thus less likely to skip them.

But, for the intermediate course my school is using it for, it just isn't rigorous enough. It has a little too much fluff. Math notes are put in the footnotes, and many math notes don't exist.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good UG text February 23, 2013
By Alex
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Don't let the author name scare you - he's pretty objective here and provides quite a few examples. Yeah, some of them are clearly self-serving and ideological, but it's also well-written enough that you'll get a lot out of it. I'm using Romer's graduate text now, and I know there's no going back to undergraduate, but there's a reason this book is so widely used.

(Price not taken into account with this rating. The book is ridiculously overpriced, like all textbooks, but that's not a specific problem here.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for learning macroeconomics February 2, 2013
By Malik
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My background is in the hard sciences and not economics and am reading the book for personal enrichment. Mankiw is a good writer. His book is unbiased and objective as a good economics book should be. He also frequently cites so you can easily read the source material if you want. The only other macro book I've read is a "For Dummies" book (which was a good introduction), so it is hard for me to compare to others and find flaws or shortcomings. However, the reading this book has made the econ blogs I read more understandable.
