"Behavioral Rationality and Heterogeneous Expectations in Complex Economic Systems" by Cars Hommes
Fri, 2014-01-03 13:51   -   (0) comments

"Professor Hommes' work is a major contribution to the understanding of intertemporal economic fluctuations. In a world in which production and investment behavior is motivated by expectations of the future, the way those expectations are formed becomes of the utmost importance. These expectations lead to dynamic systems, and the author draws on the rich literature developed for the study of mechanical and gravitational phenomena. These lead to the emergence of very complex behavior in markets driven by expectations, especially when different economic agents have different modes of forming expectations from data. The study of this book will have a profound impact on the theoretical and empirical analysis of securities markets and other forms of investment." -- Kenneth J. Arrow, Stanford University

"Of all the potential tax reforms, taxing pollution and carbon dioxide emissions has the greatest promise.

Any country contemplating tax reforms should begin with a study of the important conclusions in this volume."-- William Nordhaus, Yale University

Fri, 2014-01-24 13:02   -   (0) comments

"A major contribution to our understanding of banking, showing why nations need banks, why banks need the state, and how the quality of banking depends on how the 'Game of Bank Bargains' is played between politicians, bankers, and a penumbra of key protagonists."--Charles Goodhart, London School of Economics and Political Science

"The Dollar Trap: How the U.S. Dollar Tightened Its Grip on Global Finance" by Eswar S. Prasad
Fri, 2014-01-24 13:11   -   (0) comments

"As Eswar Prasad points out, there is something paradoxical about a world where the dollar strengthens with the U.S. financial crisis, capital flows from poor countries to rich ones, and more sophisticated finance often leads to greater risk. Prasad's book unpacks these paradoxes in a provocative and challenging way. It deserves the attention of all those who care about the future of the dollar and the international monetary system."--Lawrence H. Summers, Harvard University
