An Atheist till the age of 27, I came to know the Lord. Everyone can see the stores and restaurants are open 7 Days a week which prompted a study of what the Bible said about the Lord's Day. A preacher observed that the nations that kept the Lord's Day had freedom, and the nations that didn't lost their freedom, making it an important issue of our day. This important commandment is a sign and a measure of a nation's Godly or ungodly condition. Stores open seven days a week demonstrate an increasing selfishness and carelessness on the part of the church. What Pharaoh did with Israel long ago is becoming the rule for today. Money is becoming more important than God or man. In the Old Testament, we see God judging the heathen nations by the second table of the Law: Thou shalt not kill; Thou shalt not steal, etc. When it came to the children of Israel, the final straw stemmed from two basic reasons: idolatry and not keeping the Sabbath. At one point they were in bondage for seventy years so the land could get its Sabbaths.

This rigorous and comprehensive textbook develops a basic small open economy model and shows how it can be extended to answer many important macroeconomic questions that arise in emerging markets and developing economies, particularly those regarding monetary, fiscal, and exchange rate issues. Eschewing the complex calibrated models on which the field of international finance increasingly relies, the book teaches the reader how to think in terms of simple models and grasp the fundamentals of open economy macroeconomics.
After analyzing the standard intertemporal small open economy model, the book introduces frictions such as imperfect capital markets, intertemporal distortions, and nontradable goods, into the basic model in order to shed light on the economy's response to different shocks. The book then introduces money into the model to analyze the real effects of monetary and exchange rate policy. It then applies these theoretical tools to a variety of important macroeconomic issues relevant to developing countries (and, in a world of continuing financial crisis, to industrial countries as well), including the use of a nominal interest rate as a main policy instrument, the relative merits of flexible and predetermined exchange rate regimes, and the targeting of "real anchors." Finally, the book analyzes in detail specific topics such as inflation stabilization, "dollarization," balance of payments crises, and, inspired by recent events, financial crises. Each chapter includes boxes with relevant empirical evidence and ends with exercises. The book is suitable for use in graduate courses in development economics, international finance, and macroeconomics.
