A fellow reviewer observed that complaints concerning Romer's penchant for "trivial" mathematics were misplaced because the technicality of modern macroeconomics precludes the possibility of discussing the issues in any other way. I agree. But I think a fairer assessment would be that there are instances where Romer could develop the mathematical underpinnings in a more consise way. The best example is the second chapter on the Ramsey growth model. The easiest way to understand this model is by using optimal control/dynamic programming techniques - which is how it is taught on most graduate courses. Romer's decision not to follow this route is probably borne of a desire to make the book more accessible to undergraduates - who are unlikely to come across these methods. Whatever the intention, the result is an exposition that confuses more than enlightens. Would it not have been better to include a good coverage of optimal control techniques in the appendix?
Nevertheless, an excellent book.
- It treats in a simple manner several issues regarding the most advanced issues on Macroeconomics,
- It's updated and varied,
- It's accessible for new comers in the field.
