Failed - What the "Experts" Got Wrong about the Global Economy
Thu, 2015-11-05 00:55

Why Minsky Matters: An Introduction to the Work of a Maverick Economist
Thu, 2015-11-05 01:07

"Hyman Minsky is the most important economist since Keynes, yet it’s virtually impossible to find any books about him. Why Minsky Matters should be read not just by anyone who wants to understand Minsky, but anyone who wants to understand our economy. The reason, as L. Randall Wray makes obvious, is that Minsky does a better job of explaining the global financial crisis--and why it isn’t over yet--than anyone else. Everyone should read this book."-- Michael Pettis, Peking University

A History of Macroeconomics from Keynes to Lucas and Beyond
Thu, 2015-11-05 01:16

'No branch of economics has witnessed as many revolutions and counter-revolutions as macroeconomics, starting from Keynes' General Theory eighty years ago. Michel De Vroey's book provides a thorough but highly readable account of the main developments in the field over that period. It conveys a sense of the excitement generated by the advent of every new paradigm, as well as of the growing tension between the requirements of theoretical purity and those of empirical and policy relevance that macroeconomists keep facing these days.' -- Jordi Galí, Universitat Pompeu Fabra

author Author(s): Michel De Vroey   
publisher Publisher:  Cambridge University Press
