A cutting-edge graduate-level textbook on the macroeconomics of international trade

Combining theoretical models and data in ways unimaginable just a few years ago, open economy macroeconomics has experienced enormous growth over the past several decades. This rigorous and self-contained textbook brings graduate students, scholars, and policymakers to the research frontier and provides the tools and context necessary for new research and policy proposals.

Martín Uribe and Stephanie Schmitt-Grohé factor in the discipline's latest developments, including major theoretical advances in incorporating financial and nominal frictions into microfounded dynamic models of the open economy, the availability of macro- and microdata for emerging and developed countries, and a revolution in the tools available to simulate and estimate dynamic stochastic models. The authors begin with a canonical general equilibrium model of an open economy and then build levels of complexity through the coverage of important topics such as international business-cycle analysis, financial frictions as drivers and transmitters of business cycles and global crises, sovereign default, pecuniary externalities, involuntary unemployment, optimal macroprudential policy, and the role of nominal rigidities in shaping optimal exchange-rate policy.

Based on courses taught at several universities, Open Economy Macroeconomics is an essential resource for students, researchers, and practitioners.

  • Detailed exploration of international business-cycle analysis
  • Coverage of financial frictions as drivers and transmitters of business cycles and global crises
  • Extensive investigation of nominal rigidities and their role in shaping optimal exchange-rate policy
  • Other topics include fixed exchange-rate regimes, involuntary unemployment, optimal macroprudential policy, and sovereign default and debt sustainability
  • Chapters include exercises and replication codes

This book provides unique insights into the politics of finance and the socio-political relations which drive financial policymaking in Hong kong, Singapore, and Shanghai. While the existing literature in the field focuses mainly on economic explanations for financial centre development, this book fills a gap by focusing on the socio-political relations which underpin the financial policy-making process. Drawing on extensive interviews with senior policy-makers and financial sector professionals, the book describes how state-industry relations drive financial policy-making in three major financial hubs. Insights and policy recommendations drawn from these interviews will be particularly useful for policy-makers and financial sector professionals hoping to draw lessons from the successful development of the three leading Asian financial centres. Business and Politics in Asia's Key Financial Centres draws on public policy theoretical frameworks for its analytical basis. The three chapters focusing on the historical development of Hong Kong, Singapore, and Shanghai also provide a consolidated narrative with regard to the development of these three cities as leading financial centres, while also serving as independent case studies. Scholars focusing on policy processes and political factors that underpin financial sector development, as well as instructors and students of public policy, international political economy, and financial sector policy, will find this book useful for their research.
From the field's leading authority, the most authoritative and comprehensive advanced-level textbook on asset pricing

In Financial Decisions and Markets, John Campbell, one of the field’s most respected authorities, provides a broad graduate-level overview of asset pricing. He introduces students to leading theories of portfolio choice, their implications for asset prices, and empirical patterns of risk and return in financial markets. Campbell emphasizes the interplay of theory and evidence, as theorists respond to empirical puzzles by developing models with new testable implications. The book shows how models make predictions not only about asset prices but also about investors’ financial positions, and how they often draw on insights from behavioral economics.


After a careful introduction to single-period models, Campbell develops multiperiod models with time-varying discount rates, reviews the leading approaches to consumption-based asset pricing, and integrates the study of equities and fixed-income securities. He discusses models with heterogeneous agents who use financial markets to share their risks, but also may speculate against one another on the basis of different beliefs or private information. Campbell takes a broad view of the field, linking asset pricing to related areas, including financial econometrics, household finance, and macroeconomics. The textbook works in discrete time throughout, and does not require stochastic calculus. Problems are provided at the end of each chapter to challenge students to develop their understanding of the main issues in financial economics.


The most comprehensive and balanced textbook on asset pricing available, Financial Decisions and Markets is an essential resource for all graduate students and practitioners in finance and related fields.

Seminar paper from the year 2011 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 2,0, University of Applied Sciences Riedlingen, language: English, abstract: Today the environment of organisations like companies, corporations under public law or any other society or association is in motion. The environmental factors are changing and afford more and more attention. Greatest booster of this process is known as “globalisation”. Globalisation has become the keyword in describing the challenges a company has to take nowadays. In detail this means, that the world market is sticking together. Everything is connected a little bit more every day. There are no separated markets that are split off of being involved in a worldwide competition anymore. So any enterprises, even small business, have competitors all around the world and need to focus on that. This is the development about the competition on one hand. On the other hand there are also different situations than before concerning customers, shareholders, stakeholders, employees, public and ecology. Every group has different interests and issues. Customers are getting more individual and they have higher expectations about product quality and variety while companies are trying to standardize and slim down their production. Investors are watching financial operating numbers. Their primary concerns are hard facts like liquidity, profitability or productivity. The factors public and ecology often cohere and affect organisations when ecological concerns take a back seat to industrial ones, for example. Employees first of all want to get an attractive salary. But they also need personal development inside of the organisation. The human needs are one of the main factors of success. If job satisfaction and motivation can be generated the company can benefit from full potential of leaders, workers and employees. To face this change process and successful combine all these factors an organisation also has to change. This organisational change has to take place on all levels of an organisation from top-management to leaders, to employees and even the physical structure. Driving change within an organisation is a difficult task because people and also their attitudes have to be moved and changed, too. In this context this work wants to show what organisational change means in detail and how it can be realised using scientific perceptions about organisations, leadership and human resources.
Introduction to Modern Economic Growth is a groundbreaking text from one of today's leading economists. Daron Acemoglu gives graduate students not only the tools to analyze growth and related macroeconomic problems, but also the broad perspective needed to apply those tools to the big-picture questions of growth and divergence. And he introduces the economic and mathematical foundations of modern growth theory and macroeconomics in a rigorous but easy to follow manner.

After covering the necessary background on dynamic general equilibrium and dynamic optimization, the book presents the basic workhorse models of growth and takes students to the frontier areas of growth theory, including models of human capital, endogenous technological change, technology transfer, international trade, economic development, and political economy. The book integrates these theories with data and shows how theoretical approaches can lead to better perspectives on the fundamental causes of economic growth and the wealth of nations.


Innovative and authoritative, this book is likely to shape how economic growth is taught and learned for years to come.
