From a state of relative unanimity macroeconomic theory has, during the last decade, been dispersed in various directions. A dominant trend has been the monetarist and new classical economics with their undaunting equilibrium postulates and fatalistic views on economic policy. Keynesian responses to this development have been varied and thus give rise to further diffusion. This book provides a broad overview of the development of macroeconomic theory and methods. Against this background fundamental questions are addressed by the authors, reconciliation of micro and macroeconomic theory, the concept of income, and new suggestions for the basic framework of macroeconomic theorizing. The authors all address different topics from different perspectives, but there is a shared critical attitude towards the rejuvenation of an infalliable "invisible hand". From there on proper methods of macroeconomic modelling are explored and basic theoretical issues are examined.
