This book is meant to a primer in macroeconomics for graduate students. To make it reader-friendly to first-year students, the first two chapters provide a summary of the concepts that should already be mastered. The next eighteen chapters progressively develop the central concepts of modern macroeconomics, with the aim of being as comprehensive as possible, while offering, for each topic, the models that will deliver the results in the most simple manner. While writing this book, I have sought to achieve two main goals. The first one has been to present, whenever possible, models with explicit and rigorous microeconomic foundations, however simple they may be. Indeed, the evolution of macroeconomics in the last decades has been characterized by an inexorable move away from ad hoc models and toward models with such foundations. This has been a highly valuable development.
