Current Macroeconomic Events
A Supplementary Chapter to Macroeconomics (W.W. Norton, 2008)

Charles I. Jones

This brief supplementary chapter discusses current macroeconomic events, with special emphasis on the U.S. economy. As the economy softens and inflation continues to rise, we study the events that brought us to this point. In particular, we analyze the macroeconomic implications of the rise in the prices of basic commodities such as oil and corn, the collapse of housing prices, and the financial turmoil of the last year. The final section of the note uses the AS/AD framework of Macroeconomics to help us understand these events and what the future may hold.
