Macroeconomics by Robert J Barro ( Book )
56 editions published between 1984 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The author presents the market-clearing approach as a general method for analyzing real-world macroeconomic problems. The stress on this approach means that the book is not a "ballanced" treatment of alternative macroeconomic models. There is no book-and probably could be none of substance-that is balanced in this respect. Although he deals in a serious manner with the Keynesian model, he does not use the Keynesian framework for most of the analyses of economic events or policies. The Keynesian theory is an advance topic that involves specific assumptions about the ways that private markets malfunction. The nature of these malfunctions and the special features of the Keynesian model cannot be fully understood and appreciated until the market-clearing analysis has been worked out

Technological diffusion, convergence, and growth by Robert J Barro ( Book )
22 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We construct a model that combines elements of endogenous growth with the convergence implications of the neoclassical growth model. In the long run, the world growth rate is driven by discoveries in the technologically leading economies. Followers converge toward the leaders because copying is cheaper than innovation over some range. A tendency for copying costs to increase reduces followers' growth rate and thereby generates a pattern of conditional convergence. We discuss how countries are selected to be technological leaders, and we assess welfare implications. Poorly defined intellectual property rights imply that leaders have insufficient incentive to invent and followers have excessive incentive to copy
