"Restoring Public Debt Sustainability:The Role of Independent Fiscal Institutions" edited by George Kopits
Tue, 2013-10-22 17:54

"Increasingly, observers agree that neither rigid rules nor pliable discretion but rather independent institutions are the way forward for fiscal policy (count me among them). George Kopits has done us a service by assembling the leading experts and allowing them to make the case. At a moment when so many countries are experiencing fiscal problems, the resulting book could not be more timely." - Barry Eichengreen, University of California, Berkeley

"Turbulent and Mighty Continent: What Future for Europe?" by Anthony Giddens
Tue, 2013-10-22 18:11

""A must-read from one of the leading thinkers of our time, for all who want the European Project to adapt and progress, and preferably do so with the United Kingdom as a committed member of a stronger but also more flexible Union."- Kemal Dervis, Brookings Institution

"The Atlas of Economic Complexity" by Ricardo Hausmann and César A. Hidalgo

"The Limits of Inference without Theory" by Kenneth I. Wolpin
Tue, 2013-10-22 20:56

“A well-written treatise that examines the methodological debate within applied microeconomics on the proper role of theory. It uses unimpeachable substantive arguments and illustrations drawn mainly from Kenneth Wolpin’s own stellar career.”--Christopher J. Flinn, New York University

'Informal Governance in the European Union: How Governments Make International Organizations Work" by Mareike Kleine
Tue, 2013-10-22 21:16

"Informal Governance in the European Union is a fascinating and fresh look at the politics of the European Union. Mareike Kleine moves beyond the formalistic analysis of institutional rules to investigate the politics behind the scenes, and she convincingly demonstrates that informal governance is a key ingredient that makes European integration possible."—Randall W. Stone, University of Rochester

"The Great Escape: Health, Wealth, and the Origins of Inequality" by Angus Deaton
Fri, 2013-10-25 14:26

Demonstrating how changes in health and living standards have transformed our lives, The Great Escape is a powerful guide to addressing the well-being of all nations.

"The Map and the Territory: Risk, Human Nature, and the Future of Forecasting" by Alan Greenspan
Fri, 2013-10-25 14:59

The Map and the Territory is nothing less than an effort to update our forecasting conceptual grid. It integrates the history of economic prediction, the new work of behavioral economists, and the fruits of the author’s own remarkable career to offer a thrillingly lucid and empirically based grounding in what we can know about economic forecasting and what we can’t.

"Avoiding the Fall: China’s Economic Restructuring" by Michael Pettis
Fri, 2013-10-25 16:04

“Michael Pettis combines deep personal knowledge of China with a remarkably broad perspective on economic and financial history generally. This lets him embed the China story in a larger framework of global imbalances, so the reader can see the U.S. subprime crisis, the European sovereign crisis, and the current stresses in China as all part of one massive, global rebalancing.” —David Beim,  Columbia Business School
