This text, written with the graduate student in mind, analyzes the aggregate demand and aggregate supply for the open economy both in the short-term and in the long-term. The author discusses the role of expectations, price flexibility and market clearing for the determination of output and employment and considers the role of monetary and fiscal policy in stabilizing potential fluctuations. Two aspects of the problem are considered: the part played by stochastic shocks in destabilizing output and the extent to which policy could or should counteract them, and secondly, the implications of the stochastic nature of the macroeconomic system for the permanent income theory of consumption, the inflation-unemployment trade-off and the other relations that make up the macroeconomic system.

Christopher A. Pissarides is Professor of Economics at the London School of Economics and a Research Associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research. He received the 2010 Nobel Prize in Economics.Review:
The unemployment story has many mansions, and this book owns one of them. It analyzes unemployment as a search-and-match-mediated equilibrium of flows through the labor market, set in motion by job destruction and job creation. The new edition adds endogenous job destruction and on-the-job search to the story, and can fairly claim to tell you everything you always wanted to know about search unemployment, but didn't know whom to ask.(Robert M. Solow, Institute Professor of Economics, emeritus, MIT)
Pissarides incorporates imoprtant new developments into equilibrium unemployment theory. A particularly important development is endogenizing job destruction as well as job creation into a unified theoretical framework. This framework, along with new data on job and worker flows, promises to provide a better understanding of unemployment.(Edward C. Prescott, Universities of Chicago and Minnesota)
Pissarides provides the labor-market building blocks for the new macroeconomics. A must read for everyone in macro and labor.(Bob Hall, Hoover Institution, Stanford University)
Christopher Pissarides provides a definitive introduction to the search model of the labor market. The revised model, in dispensing with money and deriving real interest rates from real considerations, reveals itself to be a full subscriber to the natural-rate theory of unemployment. Among the several additions, the new chapter endogenizing job destruction is particularly valuable.(Edmund Phelps, McVickar Professor of Political Economy, Columbia University)
