For courses in intermediate macroeconomics. "Blanchard" is the book that helps students to see the big macroeconomic picture by integrating one unifying model throughout the text, without glossing over the core concepts that matter. "Blanchard" doesn't take shortcuts in his explanation, because students will use these tools again and again, throughout their academic and professional careers. The organization allows for the greatest degree of flexibility, so professors can direct their class as they see fit. Students build a strong base of concepts and tools that will make them better economists. Students can understand how the pieces of the economy fit with the whole, providing an integrated view of macroeconomics. Students will be able to make sense not only of past macroeconomic events, but also of those that unfold in the future. The organizational structure of this text allows for the greatest flexibility - it is organized around two central parts: a core, and a set of three major extensions. This adaptable outline allows instructors the choice of emphasizing growth or not. It also offers flexibility to modify the course emphasis from semester to semester.
