The complete Preliminary Edition of Macroeconomics in Context is
currently available to instructors and students for free download from
the website of the Global Development and Environment Institute:

Macroeconomics in Context incorporates the theoretical content
expected in a principles text, but it also delves deeper, offering a
fresh understanding of economic realities.  Instructors will find that
standard topics, including Classical and Keynesian approaches, are
covered clearly and succinctly.  In addition, questions of ecological
sustainability, non-marketed production, the quality of life, and
income distribution are given more attention than in standard texts.
Taking history, institutions, and environmental constraints seriously,
this textbook balances analysis of market processes in the
macroeconomy with discussion of public policies that go beyond
short-term stabilization targets to promote long-term sustainability
and human well-being. The text is the companion to Microeconomics in
Context (Goodwin et al., Houghton Mifflin, 2005).
