    Micro: Varian, "Microeconomic Analysis"
    Macro: King James, "The Bible"
    Metrics: Kennedy, "A Guide to Econometrics"


    Seriously, Macro depends on how/where it is being taught. There is no single volume that is adequate for all approaches.
    I'm not procrastinating. I just happen to have a very high discount rate.

    So I asked for one book. Looking at Amazon reviews, looks like they expect these volumes to be followed up with others. So would you say it is fair that for them to be followed up with:

    Micro: Varian, "Microeconomic Analysis"
    -->Amazon.com: Microeconomic Theory (9780195073409): Andreu Mas-Colell, Michael D. Whinston, Jerry R. Green: Books, Amazon.com: A Course in Microeconomic Theory (9780691042640): David M. Kreps: Books
    Metrics: Kennedy, "A Guide to Econometrics"
    -->Amazon.com: Advanced Econometrics (9780674005600): Takeshi Amemiya: Books, Amazon.com: Econometric Analysis (9780135132456): William H. Greene: Books

    This is good info for me because I am looking for soft intros into the advanced topics before reading those full books (the followup) in my coursework.

    Is there a compilation of this in an old thread? Should I start one in the OP? Too bad TM doesn't have a thread "wiki"
