Textbooks

Required

You will need the following text: Charles I. Jones (2016). Macroeconomics, 4e International Student Edition, W.W. Norton & Company, New York. Available at the University Bookshop.

Recommended

Many students find it useful to consult alternative sources to aid in their study. Macroeconomics by N. Gregory Mankiw is an accessible text that takes a somewhat different approach to certain topics that enquiring students may find interesting.
