Immediately engage your students with MACRO, a unique modern presentation of macroeconomics that makes it easy for you to emphasize a solid microfoundations and real-business cycle approach in a presentation unlike any other intermediate macroeconomics text. Student engineered and faculty approved, Robert J. Barro's MACRO demonstrates an extraordinary command of growth, equilibrium, and business cycle theory with a focus on microfoundations. Captivating features range from rocker Bono's perspective on debt relief to the hidden costs of multiple shifts and overtime hours. MACRO delivers a unified model of macroeconomics ideal for both economics majors and general business majors. The distinctive, magazine-style pages of Barro's MACRO were inspired by feedback from students and refined by input from more than seventy of your teaching peers, who helped shape teaching solutions that would work best in today's classroom. The result is a brief paperback packed with current policy and data examples that reflect the author's extensive research in the field, as well as a suite of learning aids to accommodate the busy, diverse lifestyles of today's learners. Outstanding online resources, including downloadable flash cards, videos, and interactive graphing practice, are closely integrated with the book. Students can also access the Cengage Global Economic Watch, which connects readers to thousands of journal and news articles and videos using a simple search engine. Draw your students into intermediate macroeconomics as it happens today with the powerful, appealing presentation and resources found only in MACRO.
