  New Classical Macroeconomics, by Robert King: The Concise Encyclopedia of Economics: Library of Economics and Liberty

In contrast to classical macroeconomics, new and old, Keynesian macroeconomics did not begin with the assumption that an economy is made up of individually rational economic suppliers and demanders.

Though it is widely believed that events such as the combination of inflation and unemployment in the 1970s, or the noninflationary growth from 1982 to 1989, baffled and astounded macroeconomists, this turns out to be another of those oddly popular anti-economist legends--similar to the legend that economists refused to believe in increasing returns.
As Keynesianism worked its way through the profession, macroeconomics came to be defined not as a set of issues concerning the overall performance of the economy but as a particular way of theorizing about the economy.
For purposes of dealing with the issue of stability and charting the dynamic properties of the economy (such as those implied by the multiplier-accelerator process), the output of investment goods was separated from the output of consumption goods: Investment is the unstable component, and consumption is the stable component of aggregate demand.

  Macroeconomics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Macroeconomics is the economics sub-field of study that considers aggregate behavior, and the study of the sum of individual economic decisions.
Macroeconomics can be used to analyze how best to influence government policy goals such as economic growth, price stability, full employment and the attainment of a sustainable balance of payments.
However, New Keynesian macroeconomics has generally presented microeconomic models to shore up their macroeconomic theorizing, and some Keynesians have contested the idea that microeconomic foundations are essential, if the model is analytically useful.

 THE MACROECONOMICS OF CAPITAL STRUCTURE
Arguably, the macroeconomics of labor, which is the focus of modern income-expenditure analysis, and the macroeconomics of money, which gets emphasis in the quantity-theory tradition, have each been pushed well into the range of diminishing marginal returns.
The emphasis in macroeconomics during the final quarter of the twentieth century has clearly been-not on labor, not on capital, not on money-but on expectations, so much so that theories tend to be categorized and judged primarily in terms of their treatment of expectations.
The capital-based macroeconomics offered in this volume is bolstered by the judgment of Machlup that Hayek's contribution to capital theory was both fundamental and path-breaking and by the belief that a macroeconomic framework that features the Austrian theory of capital can compare favorably to the alternative frameworks of mainstream macroeconomics.

 Chapter One   (Site not responding. Last check: )
His critique of mainstream macroeconomics is that the various schools of thought (Keynesianism, monetarism, New Classicism, and, by extension, New Keynesianism) treat time and money far too superficially in comparison to the central roles that they play in real world economies.
In addition, the Austrian theory of capital is central to its macroeconomics, and one goal of this study is to re-emphasize capital and try to wed the microeconomics of Austrian capital theory to the monetary disequilibrium approach of Yeager and others.
Conversely, sound macroeconomic policy will not lead to equilibrium in the microeconomy, but will simply not add any additional barriers to the degree of coordination that the market is capable of producing.

 Macroeconomics

Macroeconomics examines the beach, not the sand, rocks, and shells.
Further, macroeconomics is one of those subjects about which almost everyone has an opinion (often quite strongly held and even more strongly defended) but where many of those opinions are based on emotion, misunderstanding, ignorance, politics, racism, or some personal agenda.

Abstract: This paper traces the euro zone’s inadequate macroeconomic performance in recent years back to the predominance of a restrictive macroeconomic policy mix based on a ‘new monetarist’ approach to economic policy.
Contrary to the strict assignment of macroeconomic goals to the macroeconomic policy actors and their instruments in the ‘new monetarist’ approach, the alternative requires the co-ordination of monetary, fiscal and wage policies in order to achieve growth, high employment and price stability.
The main goal of macroeconomics is to gain a better understanding of the causes of, and remedies for, UNEMPLOYMENT and INFLATION, as well as the factors that affect ECONOMIC GROWTH.

 What's the difference between macroeconomics and microeconomics?
Macroeconomics, on the other hand, is the field of economics that studies the behavior of the economy as a whole and not just on specific companies, but entire industries and economies.
For example, macroeconomics would look at how an increase/decrease in net exports would affect a nation's capital account or how GDP would be affected by unemployment rate.
Regardless, both micro- and macroeconomics provide fundamental tools for any finance professional and should be studied together in order to fully understand how companies operate and earn revenues and thus, how an entire economy is managed and sustained.

This is not to say that the logic of microeconomics is easy -- it is not -- but once one has spent some time with it, and it becomes second nature, it gives a reassuring coherence to microeconomics as a whole.
Once the overall level of employment is determined by macroeconomic equilibrium (Aggregate Supply and Demand), the allocation of the given amount of resources employed is important, and here microeconomic supply and demand have their key role.
So (I'm persuaded) both microeconomics and macroeconomics are here to stay -- and the Reasonable Dialog goes on, and we have much more to learn from it.
