Dieses Lehrbuch führt in die Grundlagen der makroökonomischen Theorie ein. Es behandelt zum einen das keynesianische Theoriegebäude, das den Hintergrund für nachfrageorientierte Wirtschaftspolitiken abbildet und zum anderen die neo-klassische Theorie, aus der angebotsorientierte Politiken abgeleitet werden. Zum Abschluß des Buches werden diese beiden fundamentalen Theoriesäulen zu einer Synthese miteinander verbunden. Der makroökonomische Güter-, Geld- und Arbeitsmarkt werden modelltheoretisch analysiert und an wirtschaftspolitischen Problemen der Fiskal-, Geld- und Arbeitsmarktpolitik illustriert. Didaktisch aufeinander aufbauende, schrittweise komplexer werdende Modelle, durchgängige Zahlenbeispiele und anschauliche Illustrationen sichern den Lernerfolg und ermöglichen schließlich eigenständiges Analysieren makroökonomischer Zusammenhänge. Eine wichtige Ergänzung bildet das Lehrbuch des Autors zur volkswirtschaftlichen Gesamtrechnung (Makroökonomie I).
