The book provides an authoritative guide to the current state of macroeconomics and the views of the leading practitioners of the discipline. The subject is approached from three main perspectives: methodology, theory and economic policy. The focal interest of the book is its being built on extensive conversations with some of the world's leading macroeconomists. The book is structured in two parts: the first contains a brief introduction and the transcript of the conversations, and the second presents systematic analysis of the main information they contain. The conversations cover all the major topics of macroeconomic theory, as well as questions of methodology, relationships with the real economy, academic systems and future lines of research. This book will be important supplementary reading for macroeconomics courses at different levels, and for a wider audience of researchers and scholars in economics.
