Personal Review: Macroeconomics(3rd Edition) by Stephen D. Williamson
I really like the way the material is explained in this book. I had 2 undergraduate economic s courses covering the whole book. For the models, graphs are shownfor every case with detailed explanation. The assumption and critics for each models are explained as well. There are not much math equations and it is easy to read. Overall, I have learne d SO much.Really happy that school has assigned this book. I wasn't really listening in the class and just read the book prepare me for the exams. I have never read any other macro book, but at least this...
