"These four papers by six ECB economists provide the most systematic and detailed look at how the European Central Bank has implemented its monetary policy, both during the all-too-short "normal" times of the Bank's initial years and then during the 2008-10 crisis period. The analysis is clear and elegant, and the empirical work provides useful insights as well. Anyone seriously interested in how monetary policy is actually carried out - either by the ECB or by other central banks - will want to read these papers. " - Benjamin M. Friedman, Harvard University

Arrow’s theorem, are of paramount interest to anyone aware of the difficulties of collective decisions." — Marc Fleurbaey, Princeton University
"José A. Scheinkman creates a fascinating model of bubbles fueled by differences in traders' beliefs. His analysis of traders' incentives to increase supplies in response to bubbles is full of implications about when to regulate derivatives and when to stand aside. Scheinkman's book is a masterpiece of theory and policy analysis, a fitting tribute to Kenneth J. Arrow." — Thomas J. Sargent, New York University

Written in the tradition of D’Arista, the essays in this important collection point the way toward overcoming the recurrent financial disorders of our gilded age. Like Jane D’Arista’s work, this timely volume demands the attention of both policy experts and the politicians who must do the reconstruction.
“This is the Keynesian story told in real time as Keynes tried to persuade policy makers during the decades between 1919 and 1945. It brings Keynesian thinking alive, and explores how similar today’s problems are to those experienced between the wars. Lucidly written for students but also a fascinating exploration of a revolution in economic thought.”

Karpowitz and Mendelberg bring together an unusually rich combination of clear theorizing, deep background in several social science disciplines, convincing empirical research, and thought-provoking policy recommendations."--Nannerl O. Keohane, former president of Duke University and Wellesley College
