Abstract

Textbooks play an important role in defining fields of research and summarising key academic ideas for a wider audience. But how do you do this for an open access audience that is potentially unlimited? Filipe Campante, Federico Sturzenegger and Andrés Velasco, authors of the recently published open access LSE Press book Advanced Macroeconomics: An Easy Guide, discuss how the field has changed in recent times, what makes their approach to macroeconomics distinctive and what rationales and ambitions lie behind producing an open access textbook.
