Chapter 16 Macroeconomics Toolkit

In this chapter, we present the key tools used in the macroeconomics part of this textbook. This toolkit serves two main functions:

  1. Because these tools appear in multiple chapters, the toolkit serves as a reference. When using a tool in one chapter, you can refer back to the toolkit to find a more concise description of the tool as well as links to other parts of the book where the tool is used.
  2. You can use the toolkit as a study guide. Once you have worked through the material in the chapters, you can review the tools using this toolkit.

The chart below shows the main uses of each tool in green, and the secondary uses are in orange.
