Mitchell, Watts and Wray have created a new revolution in the study of Macroeconomics.

Shelves: economics
Full Disclosure: This is a textbook. But a highly readable and engaging textbook! The authors walk the reader through details of economic thought using relatable and accessible language. By first explaining orthodox economic frameworks, weaknesses of neoliberal/neoclassical constructs in addressing aggregate level economic circumstances are identified and alternative approaches that better address collective welfare presented. Highly recommended.
