Developed in the classroom by two of the most prominent researchers in the field, Robert C Feenstra and Alan M Taylor’s International Macroeconomics 4e is a modern textbook for a modern audience.  The new edition provides new material and examples rigorous enough to meet the challenges of teaching in this fast-moving area, yet approachable enough to encourage learning.

Applications, integrated throughout, use real-world policies, events and evidence, and help students connect theory to real world policy and events. Many topics covered reflect recent applied research and data as well as shedding new light on existing theories—sometimes supporting them, sometimes refuting them. Headlines, also show how topics in the main text relate directly to media coverage of the global economy.
