Basics of Economic Policy pp 197-471 | Cite as

Part of the Springer textbook book series (SLB)


In the Macroeconomics macroeconomic developments and problems are presented and examined. It is about economic fluctuations, economic growth, unemployment and other phenomena. In the macroeconomic view, for the sake of simplicity, individual markets are conceptually combined to form a macroeconomic market (“aggregated”). This creates a coarse picture of reality. But macroeconomic analyzes are absolutely necessary for important economic policy issues. Macroeconomic developments and data are also of great importance with regard to the interests of companies, associations and trade unions.
