An “Advanced Intermediate” International Macro Textbook

For years, I have been frustrated by the lack of a highbrow intermediate macro textbook.  None of the existing books that I’m aware of use calculus.  Plus, most of them have a closed economy orientation, putting off open economy considerations until the very end.  Well, here is my in-progress attempt to fill that gap (current version: January 30, 2018).  New additions include a section on Krugman’s liquidity trap model (chapter 19) and a monetary fiscal game (chapter 18). Feel free to use the PDF until such time as  I get it published and can charge $200 for it like all the other intermediate macro textbooks.  (Just kidding.)  I would welcome any feedback.
