Output, or real gross national product GNP , is like the schmoo 1 that lived in Dogpatch. It is a single good that can be consumed, invested, or exported, and it is produced by a homogeneous labor force and capital stock. The emphasis in these macro-economic models has typically been on the interaction between the real and financial sectors and on the role of aggregate demand policy.

Similarly, the new and revised material in this second edition has been developed as a result of teaching macroeconomic courses at Princeton, and as a visitor at the University of Stockholm and the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences in Vienna during the turbulent period since In this second edition, I still try to meet three objectives concerning substance what material is presented , while adhering to three principles concerning methodology ow the material is presented.
Concerning sub- stance, I want first to give the reader a fairly thorough discussion of the structure of the macroeconomic system and the theoretical questions and controversies concerning this basic structure before getting down to the details of empirical estimates of the precise shape of the economy. So the first substantive objective is to display to the reader the skeleton of the macroeconomy and how its parts interact, before we get into controversies concerning the precise measurement of the body.
This basic theoretical overview is accomplished in Part II, after three brief introductory chapters deal with the national income accounts and basic multiplier models from the principles course. I have not footnoted references in the text; whenever theories or results associated with particular individuals are dis- cussed, the appropriate references are included in the selected readings.
Revisions in the second edition reflect both advances in macroeconomic theory and macroeconomic events since the first edition went into produc- tion in This has led macroeconomic research to shift to an emphasis on the supply side of the economy. This shift is re- flected in Part II of the second edition, which has been thoroughly revised to incorporate the role of expectations and shifting availability of raw materials on the aggregate supply curve, and in a new Chapter 18 on in- flation and unemployment in the s that has been added to Part IV.
The Part II revisions include a complete renovation of Chapter 6 to include the role of price expectations; incorporation of search theories of unem- ployment in Chapter 8; and analysis of incomes policy in Chapter 9.
Throughout Part II we pay attention to shifts of aggregate supply as well as demand. While most of Parts IT and HI] remain within the framework of general equilibrium with flexible prices, and wages, wage rigidity is explicitly discussed in Chapter 8, and the effects of rationing are discussed in the sectoral chapters of Part III. A complete exposition of the model when markets do not clear is provided in new Chapter 16 of Part HII, adapted by John Muellbauer and Richard Portes from their paper published in the Economic Journal.
Another niajor revision in the second edition reflects current research in macroeconomics on the medium-term dynamics between short-run equi- librium and the long-run growth path. This movement from short-run to long-run is the focus of Part IV, especially in new Chapters 18 and Of course, throughout the second edition, the data, examples, empirical esti- mates, and suggested readings are all updated.
In preparing the second edition, I have incorporated suggestions from correspondents too numerous to mention here. Robert Schiller at the Uni- versity of Pennsylvania kindly. On the other hand, in its now traditional form, macroeconomics focuses on the level of utilization of resources—especially the level of employment—and the general level of prices.
In addition, macroeconomics is turning more toward the question of what determines the rate of growth. The focus of classical microeconomics on the allocation of scarce re- sources for their best uses implicitly assumed that full employment—scarcity of resources—is the normal state of the economy.
If the economy is operating at substantially less than full employment, resources are, at least temporarily, really not scarce, and the opportunity cost of additional output of almost any kind is about zero—more total output can be produced by simply reducing unemployment. Because the U. While we may not be able, at this level, to take the student right to the front lines of macro theory, the least we can do is give him a brief tour of the intellectual combat zone. Actual and Potential Output Most of macroeconomic theory in its current stage of development focuses on two main questions: 1.
What determines the path—level and rate of growth—of full-employ- ment or potential output? This is the question of growth theory. What determines the level of actual output relative to potential at any one time? This is the question of income determination or stabilization theory. A third question concerning the behavior of the price level—the rate of infiation—can be added to the second of these two central questions, and it too occupies a good deal of space here. If depends, ateast.
In this book we deal with the two main questions in inverse order, mostly because, as is suggested earlier, much more is known about stabilization theory and, especially, policy than about growth theory and its applications. For this reason, the traditional macroeconomics course focuses on the. Before we go on to a brief preview of the methods we use in Parts II-IV, it should be useful to review the movement of actual and potential gross national product GNP , unemployment, and prices in the U.
This is to give the reader a feeling for the relationships between these variables and also for the context in which this book is set. The rate of inflation also flattened as a result of eased demand pressure.
With the economy slowing in late , the Federal Reserve permitted the money supply to resume its growth at. To balance these expansioriary moves, in January the Administra- tion requested a temporary income tax increase, to become effective in July od , to slow down the growth in consurher demand.
However, the tax increase was not passed until July , and by then the combination of continued money supply growth of 6. Passage of the explicitly temporary income tax increase of about. Finally, in late and early the growth of government purchases slowed; there was almost no increase in purchases from III into At the same time the growth of the money supply was again slowed in early and held to 1 percent in the last half of The unemployment rate was up to 6 percent at the end of , and the first signs of a slowdown in the rate of inflation were appearing.
The reduction in demand seemed to be slowing the rate of inflation, so that in the economy might begin another gradual expansion with stable prices and slowly falling unemployment. However, this pleasant scenario, written in early , did not describe the actual developments that followed. The inflation, recession, and recovery of the s are analyzed in detail in Chapter 18; here we conclude this narrative with a short summary.
In mid the unemployment rate peaked at 5. The rate of inflation was falling from 5. This steady fall in the inflation rate was not apparent at the time, and in August the Adminis- tration began the first phase of wage and price controls, which continued into , With the controls in place, the Administration provided a substantial stimulus to demand in an election year. The money supply grew 8. We introduce, in turn, a product market for goods and services, a money market, and a labor market.
Together with the production function linking output and employment, demand-and-supply equilibrium conditions in these three markets jointly determine the equilibrium levels of four key variables— output, employment, the price level. In general, what happens in one market affects all markets in a general equilibrium framework; so in Part IT, where we focus on the skeletal analytic framework of the system.
This will tend to reduce interest rates, since people can reduce cash holdings and buy interest-earning bonds.
The increase in bond demand bids bond prices up and interest rates down. The drop in interest rates essentially raises investment demand by making borrowing cheaper. Increased investment demand raises sales and income and pulls the price level up. The increase in output and the price level raises employment.
In the meantime, higher income and price levels tend to raise the demand for money, so that to a certain extent the effect of the original stimulus of the credit card is offset. Eventually, the system settles to a new equilibrium with higher levels of output, prices, and employment, and a lower interest rate.
The important point in Part II is developing an intuitive under- standing of this kind of simultaneity. We see what both theory and practical experience with economic data tell us, for example, about how long it takes for one variable, say, investment demand. We also discuss whether temporary tax changes have different effects on the level of consumer spending than permanent ones.
Her Ne Dramas Pea! Many of the economic aggregates, such as consumer expenditure, business invest- ment, and so on, that this book deals with, are defined in the accounts, which also provide a framework for analyzing the level of economic activity.
So we begin our analysis of income determination with a brief review of the accounts. The product side of the national accounts measures the flow of currently produced goods and services in the economy.
The income side of the accounts measures the factor incomes that are earned by U. On the product side, the flow of goods and services currently produced by U. S, workers is measured by expenditures on these goods and services by consumers, businesses, government, and foreigners. The counter- part to this flow of expenditures on final product is national income, which measures income received by factors of production—compensation of employees, profits paid to owners of capital, earnings of proprietors, and so on—in compensation for producing the final product.
This means that the product and income sides are two different measures of the same continuous flow. The product side measures expenditures on output, These expenditures then become payments compensating the factors that produced the output. Some Principles Behind the Accounts There are a few basic ideas underlying the construction of the accounts that should be kept in mind as we go through them. Here, four of these ideas, which seem particularly relevant to our purposes, are briefly discussed.
Keeping an eye or them will help prevent confusion in the later discussion. On the product side of the accounts, this principle means that sectors of expenditure should be aggregated by who does the spending, that is, into expenditures by consumers, businesses, governments, and foreigners.

Он был уверен, что чрезмерный нажим не приведет ни к чему хорошему. - Расслабьтесь, мистер Беккер. Если будет ошибка, мы попробуем снова, пока не добьемся успеха. - Плохой совет, мистер Беккер, - огрызнулся Джабба. - Нужно сразу быть точным.
С этим Танкадо сумел примириться. Но он не смог примириться с тем, что этот взрыв лишил его возможности познакомиться с собственной матерью. Произведя его на свет, она умерла из-за осложнений, вызванных радиационным поражением, от которого страдала многие годы. В 1945 году, когда Энсей еще не родился, его мать вместе с другими добровольцами поехала в Хиросиму, где работала в одном из ожоговых центров. Там она и стала тем, кого японцы именуют хибакуся - человеком, подвергшимся облучению. Через девятнадцать лет, в возрасте тридцати шести лет, она лежала в родильном отделении больницы, страдая от внутреннего кровотечения, и знала, что умирает. Она не знала лишь того, что смерть избавит ее от еще большего ужаса: ее единственный ребенок родится калекой.
В АНБ он получил кличку Джабба и приобрел репутацию полубога. Он бродил по коридорам шифровалки, тушил бесконечные виртуальные пожары и проклинал слабоумие нерадивых невежд. Чатрукьян знал: как только Джабба узнает, что Стратмор обошел фильтры, разразится скандал. Какая разница? - подумал. - Я должен выполнять свои обязанности.
