Тематический раздел:
A comprehensive treatment of dynamic modeling and intertemporal general equilibrium macroeconomics for first- and second-year graduate students. The focus is on key macroeconomic models to show how dynamic modeling is used to analyze the effects of policy on economic growth and performance. Four sections cover traditional macrodynamics, rational expectations, intertemporal optimization, and continuous-time stochastic models, as well as current topics in macroeconomics such as distortionary taxation, endogenous growth, and open economy issues.

In this text Stephen J. Turnovsky reviews in depth several early models as well as a representation of more recent models. They include traditional (backward-looking) models, linear rational expectations (future-looking) models, intertemporal optimization models, endogenous growth models, and continuous time stochastic models. The author uses examples from both closed and open economies. Whereas others commonly introduce models in a closed context, tacking on a brief discussion of the model in an open economy, Turnovsky integrates the two perspectives throughout to reflect the increasingly international outlook of the field.

This new edition has been extensively revised. It contains a new chapter on optimal monetary and fiscal policy, and the coverage of growth theory has been expanded substantially. The range of growth models considered has been extended, with particular attention devoted to transitional dynamics and nonscale growth. The book includes cutting-edge research and unpublished data, including much of the author's own work.
