In 2002, Financing the Economy was also designed as a series of modules that can be found in the Assignments pages for ECO 2309 Money and Banking: http://www.drfurfero.com/courses/2309/frames/framea.html. Students are hyperlinked from the website to relevant readings and databases at other websites. Each course has its own Discussion Forum and Chatroom.

Books

Macroeconomic Stabilization Policies: Goals, Institutions, and Theories, 12th ed. (2012). Published at http://www.drfurfero.com/books/mandf/ch00.html. The book was originally published in hard copy in 1987 and was first installed on the website in 1998. The book recites the nuts and bolts of materials that the graduate MBA students need to know to analyze macroeconomic problems in ECO 631: Monetary and Fiscal Policies. The economic and financial academic and professional backgrounds of the students in this course vary significantly from virtually no knowledge to substantial knowledge. No quality textbook currently exists. This book levels the playing field for all of the students in the course and sets the stage for an in depth analysis of contemporary macroeconomic problems during classroom discussions. It also includes a new methodology for analyzing macroeconomic problems and their policy solutions. The book is currently complete with 21 chapters (over 1,000 printed pages). Each chapter contains hyperlinks to many online scholarly articles and electronic databases. The book is continually updated as new articles and materials become available. As time and resources permit, selected contemporary problems will be written and appended to the principal text. In summer 2010, it was updated to include analyses of the 2007-2010 economic and financial crises, explanations of the Federal Reserve's new monetary tools (the credit, liquidity, and swap facilities) (chapters 3 and 11), new diagrams for the federal funds market showing the discount rate above and below the federal funds rate, the new liquidity facilities, and interest payments on reserves (chapter 11), the Bush and Obama stimulation packages and their effectiveness (chapter 3), clearer delineations of the assumptions and logic of Say's Law and the Quantity Theory of Money and all new summaries of post-WW II monetary and fiscal policies from 1946 to 1979 [to be continued] (chapter 3), a new table and better explanations of the differences between the assumptions of the Keynesian School and the assumptions of the Monetarist Schools (chapter 1), the Anxious Index (chapter 8), and updated data charts throughout. In 2012, the book was updated to include the quantitative easing and qualitative easing programs, the forward guidance by the FOMC, the quarterly economic projections, and Ben Bernanke's press conferences.

Financing the Economy, 3rd ed. (2011). Published at http://www.drfurfero.com/books/2309book/book.html. The book was previously published on this website as Money, Banking, and the Economy (1998) and updated as Financing the Economy in 2001 and 2004. The book has also been redesigned into a series of modules that can be found in the Assignments pages for the ECO 2309 Money and Banking course: http://www.drfurfero.com/courses/2309/frames/framea.html. The book and the modules are the author's version of how money, commercial banks, other financial institutions, and the Federal Reserve interact with the real economic sectors to provide an efficient flow of funds for production, employment, and income. The book is currently complete with 15 chapters (approximately 700 printed pages). Each chapter contains hyperlinks to many online scholarly articles and electronic databases. The book is continually updated as new articles and materials become available. As time and resources permit, selected contemporary problems will be written and appended to the principal text.

Macroeconomic Policies Around the World (projected 2004). To be published at http://www.drfurfero.com. The book is an anthology of case studies of foreign countries' macroeconomic problems and policies designed to serve as a case studies book for a course in International Monetary and Fiscal Policies or simply as a readings book for the Monetary and Fiscal Policies course. The book systematizes macroeconomic goals and institutions in different countries for a comparative analysis of the countries' macroeconomic policies and their effectiveness. I have developed a new methodology for identifying the appropriate fiscal and financial linkages for successful implementation of monetary and fiscal policies. Each case study compares the country's actual fiscal and financial linkages to the referent model, extracts the country's strengths and weaknesses, makes proposals for improvements for the successful implementation of monetary and fiscal policies, and suggests alternative macroeconomic policies for cases in which the linkages are too weak to support contemporary monetary and fiscal policies. The book is in the initial stages of compilation, the methodology is structured, the theoretical concepts and standards for comparisons developed, and six (6) case studies have been written on Guyana, Hong Kong, Jamaica, Singapore, Taiwan, and Trinidad and Tobago. The case of Bangladesh is under construction. When finished, the book is estimated to have 30 chapters (approximately 600 printed pages).
