Reconstructing Macroeconomics by Masanao Aoki
Book DescriptionIn this book, the authors treat macroeconomic models as composed of large numbers of micro-units or agents of several types and explicitly discuss stochastic dynamic and combinatorial aspects of interactions among them. In mainstream macroeconomics sound microfoundations for macroeconomics have meant incorporating sophisticated intertemporal optimization by representative agents into models. Optimal growth theory, once meant to be normative, is now taught as a descriptive theory in mainstream macroeconomic courses. In neoclassical equilibria flexible prices led the economy to the state of full employment and marginal productivities are all equated. Professors Aoki and Yoshikawa contrariwise show that such equilibria are not possible in economies with a large number of agents of heterogeneous types. They employ a set of statistical dynamical tools via continuous-time Markov chains and statistical distributions of fractions of agents by types available in the new literature of combinatorial stochastic processes, to reconstruct macroeconomic models.

Books By Author Masanao Aoki
Reconstructing Macroeconomics, Paperback (August 2011)
In this book, the authors reconceptualize existing macroeconomics by treating equilibria as statistical distributions, not as fixed points.
Modeling Aggregate Behavior and Fluctuations in Economics, Paperback (September 2004)
This book analyses how a large but finite number of agents interact and what statistical consequences follow.
