Unlike traditional textbooks, this book develops a conceptual framework, historically and theoretically, for a growing economy. Based on simple models with numerical examples, it applies concepts from classical macroeconomics to interpret economic events and data in USA and India over several decades, and some other Asian economies also.
Develops an integrated framework, combining short-run fluctuations with long-run growth, unlike widely used textbooks that treat these topics separately.
