"Europe on the Brink presents an exhaustive and global view of the
development of the crisis now called the European Debt Crisis, with, in this
reviewer’s opinion, a correct balance of emphasis between the social and
economic impacts resulting from the crisis. The book’s focus highlights the
interdependence between the factors that provoked the global financial crisis in
2008-2009, with its epicentre in US capital markets, and the European crisis,
concentrating on contagion and spill-over effects to the old world
continent."-- Adrián Cosentino, member of the Debt Restructuring Unit of Argentina’s Ministry of Economy and
"European Social Models from Crisis to Crisis is an amazing volume with sobering conclusions for European welfare state and integration prospects. It is the first collection in welfare regime studies and comparative political economy to show how the European sovereign debt crisis, with its aftershocks of mass unemployment and rising inequality resulted from how monetary integration unfolded since the 1989 fall of the Berlin Wall. By doing so in a highly structured fashion, the volume rightly breaks with the convention of 'methodological nationalism.' It's a first rate, timely and utterly indispensable read for EU and domestic policy makers, welfare state students, political economists and EU integration pundits and academics." - Anton Hemerijck, VU University of Amsterdam
The latest in the NBER’s influential Studies in Income and Wealth series, which has played a key role in the development of national account statistics in the United States and other nations, this volume explores collaborative solutions between academics, policy researchers, and official statisticians to some of today’s most important economic measurement challenges.
Long-standing economic trends that were disrupted by the global financial crisis can no longer be counted on as a reliable guide for understanding and charting the future. To provide a more accurate analysis of the likely course of worldwide financial developments,this volume concentrates on a set of critical economic factors and offers a description of the possible evolution of their reach and scope.
