  1. Push,

    I agree. The way that we teach macro at the undergraduate level is not satisfactory in light of modern theory. It is unfortunate that such a dissertation writer would likely have to jump through hoops to get this type of topic approved.

  2. Agent Continuum: “Jones…is close to what you’d like to see.”
    Jones is great except for Ch9-12.
    Andolfatto’s online intermediate macro text is superior to Jones on money
    and business cycles.
