    This book is for students with little or no previous knowledge of economic theory who intend to study the subject systematically and provides a general introduction to the theory while not including the special problems of international trade, public finance and welfare economics. Some parts of the book will be useful to more advanced students. The changes in this edition concentrate on the developments in macro-economic theory resulting from the interaction recently between the ‘monetarists' and ‘Keynesians', and one chapter now gives an account of ‘monetarism' and the succeeding chapter presents the refinements and extension of Kaynes' own ideas.
