Comments/Reviews

Description: In this interactive collection of essays, many of the leading proponents of analytical political economy examine major macroeconomic issues through the integration of mathematical analysis and non-neoclassical economic theory. The topics covered include the macroeconomics of the labor market, open economy issues, economic growth, and macroeconomic policy. The chapter-comment-reply format of the book creates a genuine dialogue on each theme, and evokes a sense of unfolding debate which draws the reader into the discussion.
