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? We talked to Filipe Campante (Johns Hopkins), Federico Sturzenegger (Harvard/Universidad de San Andrés) and Andrés Velasco (LSE), authors of the recently published LSE Press book Advanced Macroeconomics: An Easy Guide, about 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.
