Froyen, Richard T.
Journal of Economic Education, v27 n2 p108-15 Spr 1996
Traces the development of macroeconomic theory from John Maynard Keynes to modern endogenous growth theory. Maintains that a combination of interest in growth theory and related policy questions will play a prominent role in macroeconomics in the future. Recommends narrowing the gap between graduate school and undergraduate economics instruction. (MJP)
