“This important treatise surveys and extends recent research, much of it by the authors, on the dynamics of exchange-rate regimes and the effects of regime choices on economic performance. Anyone wishing to understand the modern international monetary system will profit greatly from reading Klein and Shambaugh's unique synthesis.” —Maurice Obstfeld, Department of Economists, University of California, Berkeley
“Rational Choice provides a clear and non-technical introduction to the theory of rational individual decision making, as well as brief looks at game theory, social choice, and market equilibrium. The book is particularly strong in its treatment of risk and uncertainty, where it combines lucid descriptions of the standard theory with some discussion of its limitations. Highly recommended!” —Drew Fudenberg, Department of Economics, Harvard University
