Measuring Happiness - The Economics of Well-Being
Thu, 2014-12-11 21:20

“The novelty of this book is not just in its clever and compelling way of arguing that ‘money does buy happiness’; it is the idea that our reference points change when we measure happiness over time.” Ruud Muffels Professor of Socio-Economics, Tilburg University, the Netherlands

Understanding Global Crises - An Emerging Paradigm
Thu, 2014-12-11 21:30

"Assaf Razin has performed a real tour de force: blending historical study with rigorous theoretical analysis; presenting a vast and penetrating overview of the literature on financial crises; developing a new macroeconomic paradigm in which financial intermediaries play a major role, and in which asset and debt accumulation matters. All in one book. Thanks to Assaf Razin's book, doing macroeconomics is interesting again." Paul De Grauwe - John Paulson Chair in European Political Economy, London School of Economics and Political Science

Currency Politics: The Political Economy of Exchange Rate Policy
Thu, 2014-12-11 22:12

"This is international political economy as it should be. Frieden presents a sturdy framework that shows why various interest groups ought to favor strong or weak currencies, and stable or flexible exchange rates. His book's convincing applications of this framework range from sectional politics in nineteenth-century America, to today's eurozone divisions, to the vicissitudes of emerging markets."--Jeffrey Frankel-Harvard University

Cutting the Gordian Knot of Economic Reform - When and How International Institutions Help
Thu, 2014-12-11 23:40

"Baccini and Urpelainen offer a compelling account of the causes and consequences of North-South trade agreements. By showing that these agreements have enabled comprehensive economic reforms beyond trade liberalization, the book offers an important and timely contribution to the study of international economic institutions. The book will be a key reference to scholars and students of international and comparative political economy." -Helen V. Milner, Princeton University

Development Projects Observed
Thu, 2014-12-11 23:52

"The largest idea in this remarkable book involves the Hiding Hand, which turns out to be a bit of a trick up history’s sleeve. It also provides a felicitous escape from disaster. It’s a story, and an intricate one, but in Hirschman’s view, it is repeatable. Hirschman believes that it tells us a great deal about development, if we are careful to specify the underlying mechanisms." - Cass Sustein, Harvard University
